Dear Bo
This a typical answer from a Journal like Science (or Nature) .My
experience tells me, that had the first author been american you might
have got it published in Science.I am not sure, that Nature will accept
the paper, because they are very focused on items, which are more
general, than our paper.
My advice is , that you should prepare the paper for GRL instead of
using the effort on a Nature paper.Whatever you do , I do of course
hope, that the paper will soon be published.

Sincerely

Claus Hammer
