You can't be serious. It's like spending $1 billion on a moon rocket that can't
break orbit then blaming the rocket.

The difference is that escape velocity is known in advance, whereas the energy
regime in which new physics may be found... is unknown.

So it's not like a rocket that can't get to orbit; it's like a rocket that _does_
get to Mars... but fails to find life there.

I hear NASA is getting back into SETI. Must be nice to have all that money to burn.

Yes, it did facilitate providing proof of the Higgs, but hasn't done anything since then. Begs the question if building an even larger, costlier linear accelerator. LHC is down now, getting a power upgrade. Still, spending $15B and finding something (the Higgs) is better than to have spend $150 billion for nothing (ISS).

Please do not post here again until you have a minimum clue:


And if you post, either please do not use Google Groups, or work around its
bugs. For example, your lines are light-years long, give or take some
orders of magnitude; the agreed limit is 80 characters.

You can resize your browser window to show only 80 characters per line, or whatever number you prefer.
