    Cool! :)
    But... We've reached the size limit for a while right?

    Hi Zarnak,

    I don't know what the size limit is (as you refer to it), but what I do know in terms of size limit that the ultimate limit is probably around the size of the Planck constant, i.e. 1/10(-35) or thereabouts. Currently, our technology is at about 1/10(-18) afaik.
