1. It's not a record. It's a piece of soot covered paper that was never intended to be able to be played back. It was just a way of visualizing sound at the time.

2. To test the technology of both periods and to satisfy curiosity, which is esentially what science is about.

3. They are learning that this method did actually record usable sound (even if it was poor quality has been badly degraded), that their laser imaging technique is capable of pulling sound off of a very wide variety of media.

No knowledge is useless...certainly not because one person who didn't care enough to listen to a 90 second clip can't personally come up with an application right of the top of their head.
Saves me the effort.

If you actually listened to the dude talk about it he clearly says that they don't want to damage the recording (its on paper, recorded in soot), so they had to come up with a method to listen to it without touching it. Which is whats impressive about it.

And you sound pretty ignorant... Who cares if someone sang 100 years ago? That is a very ignorant question.
