This is a suggestion for how to create and study superstrings using
Bose-Einstein condensates:

arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0505055

Does this approach look promising?

What questions could it answer?

It's definitely a lot of fun in atomic physics - a typical Masud Haque ;-)
who was my classmate at Rutgers.

It will be hard to extract some questions from this model of Green-Schwarz
superstrings - something that goes beyond the things that we can easily
calculate. But who knows. When they fine-tune the system to be
supersymmetric, maybe something completely unexpected happens. ;-)

However, mulating a single linear piece of a free string is very far from
emulating the whole string theory with the interactions, D-branes, black
holes, and so forth.
