I'm always impressed by people who are doing things. I like it. I really loved this report about the "cyclotron kids", with the goal of being the first teenagers to produce and detect antimatter. It's fascinating what people can do, especially with the right connections and the right support. I hope they will succeed! Experimental physics is sometimes very exhausting, when you are in the middle of setting things up and nothing works. Just trying is worth a lot anyway, but it would be fun if they can actually make some antiparticles.
