I love this because this discovery all started with a young boy on a hike making some basic observations. Basic observations, like this one, are exactly how all science begins. Everyone is capable of doing this. Science then asks: why or how does this work? From there, an experiment is made to answer the question. This is also an example of how even the basics of nature have yet to be discovered and simply how amazing it can be!
