A minute tractor beam... everyone knows things that start minute can turn into big **** (televisions for example)
I'm so ******* excited.

So far, the tractor beam can only tug on polystyrene particles in water. Also, because of the mechanism by which it operates, if you were to scale it up for use on macroscopic objects, the intensity of the laser would vaporize the target.   
   
Still, it's a step in the right direction and should be taken as nothing but good news.

Thanks to your comment I realized OP was not talking about a measure of time when he said minute.

The way the word is pronounced is "My Newt", it just means that something's small or insignificant, if you didn't catch on already. I know the pronunciation always baffled me when I first heard the word.

Alright, sorry for wasting your time friend, I was just making sure is all.

The tractor beam is called a Bessel beam, however it can't simply be upsized (It is, after all, just photons acting in a certain way). But I'm sure we'll get there eventually.
