Wuulllll, wait a minute. I didn't get the notion that he was testing to
see if a real-world configuration would work. Most engineering and
science projects don't test the real world (less so now than in times
past, and I don't mean global warming).
It looks like he has designed an experiment to test a narrow range of
conditions that look to be useful for piecing together what the larger
(and largely un-testable) picture might look like.
