When rainbowsludgecicles were discovered, it was immediately suspected that they were related to lazersludgecicles. What we now know, though, is that in fact both phenomena are actually a type of lazercreamsicle. Modern analytical techniques are now being applied to determine the exact evolutionary history of the family tree, as it were. There are some hints so far that there may be yet-undiscovered variants that could still exist. Ever larger and more complex containment vessels are under construction to explore the creation of synthetic creamsicle derivatives. Recent advances in materials engineering have shown that combining multiple variants of lazercreamsicles under various temperatures and pressures yields chaotic results that are hard to model mathematically. Physical experimentation has proven to be the best way to discover new forms. Combicicles created in a high-pressure reactor are usually unstable under normal atmospheric and electronic conditions. The current holy grail of the new field of creamsicle engineering is to find a “room temperature creamsicle” that can be used in more realistic situations. Storage and disposal of hazardous byproducts is also an issue.
Measuring and analyzing substances within the reactor can usually be done most precisely from inside each sample.
