An article in Science

The work that we've been doing for about 2.5 years finally paid off in an article in this (Nov 10, 2006) week's issue of Science magazine. After a lengthy work of analyzing data, writing, drawing, answering to critics we were able to publish our results. I feel fortunate and very much indebted to many many people that helped in this.
