Dunno if it has been said yet, but this article is a phony!!!!
While this theory has been tested and played with, the source of reporting comes into question.
I have not ever heard of this web source as being reliable or even existing. I also find it hard to believe that an article about such an esteemed university would carry as many typos and gramatical errors as this. This report is bad reporting at its best. I challenge the rest of you to find news on this from Reuters, Associated Press or even the MIT newspaper/website.
Please, Please check your sources.
EDIT: Yes I do know this is on the famed "Toms Hardware" site, but the article reeks of false sources and unneeded hype and shock. The article's only source is hearsay and a vague dialogue from a professor of unknown position at the university. Something so truthfull and important should have value enough for more than a page of journalism and be virtually free of errors.
I'm not just trying to be an ass or know-it-all. I am more than willing to accept this article as worthy if there was more substance to it.
