Theoretical physicist Sabine Hossenfelder:

Her stance is "no", and I think I agree with her.

Click on some of her other videos, which include such topics as Dark Matter, Modified Gravity, and even Super Fluid Dark Matter.

This kinda science is way above my pay grade. I would need to know more about this scientists credibility, agenda's etc before I could agree or not agree with her statements or conclusions.

Calling Brain Cox's!

Theoretical physicist Sabine Hossenfelder:

First question, does that physicist really exist or just in theory?

I think, therefore I am?

Yes, the world practically demands it.

Only if we can put some FSM'ers in there and collide them almost at the speed of light.

I agree with her.

Please elaborate.

I agree with her.

Please elaborate.


She has a transcript of her video here:

https://backreaction.blogspot.com/2019/04/does-world-need-larger-particle.html

Excerpt: "So, now that I have covered why particle colliders are a good way to probe short distances, let me explain why I am not in favor of building a larger one right now. It’s simply because we currently have no reason to think there is anything new to discover at the next shorter distances, not until we get to energies a billion times higher than what even the next larger collider would reach. That, and the fact that the cost of a next larger particle colliders is high compared to the typical expenses for experiments in the foundations of physics.

So a larger particle collider presently has a high cost but a low estimated benefit. It is just not a good way to invest money. Instead, there are other research directions in the foundations of physics which are more promising. Dark matter is a good example."

Thanks. That's what she said. I wanted to know what you think.

Ah, well, I'm not sure what more I can add. I just find her arguments persuasive, re: cost-benefits. Getting more bang for the buck, and all that!

Nice! LOL
