It's interesting how such seemingly miniscule factors could have enough of an effect on the instrumentation that IBM felt the need to drop so much money on blocking them out. (The room costed $50,000 per square foot.)
Sometimes I wonder how accurately such research can depict real life situation. Virtually no object in this world exists in such condition, so even if the researcher can acquire some data of a particular object, it is only under the extremely-controlled environment, which doesn't exist in real. Question is how we can apply the data in real. Of course we've been doing that so far to certain success rate, but this one I doubt.
you got it wrong the room is for research and manufacturing(sort of) just like no hardware you got ets damaged by dust but its manufactured in dust free envirioment, these quite rooms are for research in building nano tech
