So, a smidgen of nail polish is enough to abort a launch
That has to be the absolute best proof that rocket science is awesome.
We, as a race, are at the point where we can build things that are so complex, so precise, that an insignificant amount of some compound is enough to require a shutdown on a launch procedure.
And the fact that we have the technology to detect that is, again, awesome.
Rocket science. It's in the title.
