Well, I bring that one up because it was the thing that “everybody was talking about” at the time, 7.5 years ago.

I was excited about that, just as people are excited about this.

But I honestly don’t know if anything came of it, just as I’m not sure if anything will come of this, outside of needing to prove results for a new LIGO detector in order to continue to secure fundings for a bit longer.

So while it’s not a direct comparison, it’s an example of comparing a hyped up “Science Discovery That Will Change Everything” – and wondering whether it really *did* change “Physics as we know it” or if it is just a way to justify their jobs.
