Wow, we hear about amazing advancements in science and technology every day. I found this article on a new virus detection technology and at the same time came across something mysterious I'd never hear of before (The Whispering Gallery). In this scenarios science advanced because of a mystery that was studied. So it appears that esoteric things and science go hand in hand... after all... Just my little snippet. Interesting Stuff.

ScienceDaily (Aug. 24, 2012) — By affixing nanoscale gold spheres onto a microscopic bead of glass, researchers have created a super-sensor that can detect even single samples of the smallest known viruses. The sensor uses a peculiar behavior of light known as "whispering gallery mode," named after the famous circular gallery in St. Paul's Cathedral in London, where a whisper near the wall can be heard around the gallery.

Here is a link to the new Virus Detector Sensor
