Things that make you go "hmmm..."

So, I just read this article about the world's most powerful laser being built. The scientists who are building it are hoping to find "ghost particles" and other dimensions.

Uh... wow! 

What do you think about this?

*sigh* Clearly I've been an engineer too long, because when I read a sentence that says it's going to take 10 years to complete and a predicted 1.6 billion, all I can think is that no project ever comes in on time or under budget. This is going to take a long time (if it doesn't get cancelled due to policy changes) and its going to cost a lot of money

But other than that, it's pretty cool. If they could prove the existence of other dimensions and the number of other dimensions, I feel like that would put a lot of theoretical physics arguments to rest.

Ah! Your comment makes me laugh - at least the first paragraph! Yeah... it could be really cool otherwise & if it actually happens! :)
