OK. I'd have to reread that slowly to get more out of it.

I did see something at the very end that caught my eye:
 
quote
The research was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and a seed grant from the MIT Energy Initiative.

Big History jumps backwards in time, to this:
 
quote
Back in 2011, during the GOP presidential primary, Rick Perry spoke during a debate and tried to list the three federal agencies he’d abolish if elected to the White House.

“And I will tell you,” Perry said, “it is three agencies of government when I get there that are gone. Commerce, Education, and the … what's the third one there? Let's see."

Then he stumbled. He couldn’t recall the third. When coaxed by other candidates and the moderator — did he mean the Environmental Protection Agency, maybe? — he drew a blank. “Sorry,” he said as he grinned sheepishly at the cameras. “Oops.”

A few minutes later, Perry remembered — it was the Department of Energy he wanted to get rid of! That was it.

"Rick Perry once wanted to abolish the Energy Department. Trump picked him to run it."
Brad Plumer for Vox; December 13, 2016.

I won't even put the page link.
