I was following this story from the beginning. What really jumped out at me
is that they had already predicted the shape of the chirp's waveform years
before (with a mathematical model, of course)! And both the actual waveform
and the model's prediction of it were nearly identical!
I wish I could understand very advanced mathematics so that I could grasp
exactly how various types of modeling work. But that's OT. ;-)
