MOEDAL sounds a little bit like the idea to store large amounts of data on scotchtape (alredy prooven).

I love the apparent simplicity of the experiment: just use plastic foil as wallpaper, and watch closely.
You cannot see how brilliant it is until you spend some time figuring out what they are doing.

Gotta love simple...

Kinda amazing considering all the complexity and cost involved in all the other experiments.

This experiment has a nice cost vs results ratio...

Sort of reminds me of the good old nuclear emulsion...
