Couldn’t figure out in 200 years

The previous week i was introduced to a senior neuroanatomist from Switserland. My friend introduced him as a pioneer in his field. He was quick to mention that it was a happenstance because back in his days no one noticed his work. Infact it was rejected in a reputed journal. Then he asked me about my work. I mentioned to him that i work on steel. To which he remarked that the last he checked it was nearly 200 years that steel research had begun. And then in good humour, “you couldn’t figure it out in 200 years”,… “its a positive sign for neuroscientists…they have just begun”
To my surprise, he was aware of the asian swords and their persian connection.
