Discovery NotesSun was shinning on the dirt that was collected, which made the dirt warm, and there was a small breeze in the air.
Naming NotesThe name 'Cornelius' comes from an Irish origin which means strong willed, and this phage fought throughout all of the experiments as many plaques appeared. The entire name should be read as "Cornelius the fourth" because it gives it more prestige.
