    became understood

    Does this make sense to say that:

    Superconductivity became understood since BCS's proposed their theory?

    Does the sentence imply "the BCS's theory can explain superconductivity"?

    Thanks.
    Have a nice day.

    Re: became understood

    It doesn't really make sense, it would be better to say either:

    Superconductivity was understood when BCS's proposed their theory

    or

    Superconductivity has been understood since BCS's proposed their theory

    Both sentences imply "the BCS's theory can explain superconductivity".
