E’ importante precisare che, trattandosi di ricerca, non è detto che tutti i progetti portino ai risultati sperati; ma un attacco in massa di queste proporzioni permetterà ai ricercatori, nei prossimi anni, di esaminare e sperimentare tali e tante possibilità alternative che le probabilità di riuscita, a livello globale, possono considerarsi notevoli.

Come disse Edison, inventore della prima lampadina della storia, quando finalmente riuscì a fabbricarne una funzionante dopo migliaia di tentativi falliti: non aveva fallito migliaia di volte, ma scoperto migliaia di modi per non fabbricare una lampadina funzionante.

Ma alla fine trovo il modo giusto.


Osservazione: ma la FIAT c’è o ci fa?? Marchionne dice che le auto elettriche non saranno mai buone  a niente… e poi il Centro Ricerche FIat è coinvolto in 30 progetti di ricerca sull’argomento???
