Oh, all right then.The 20th century physics economical gravy train continues. Nobody wants to shake the boat and say something radical lest they lose the support of their funding bodies. But the standard models is crap. It has 18 arbitrary unexplained parameters, and a major unresolved paradox.The chances of the standard model, or worse, string theory, of producing major insights into reality leading to near to medium term benefits to society is nil. The work of Anton Zeilinger and his team continues to highlight the severe inadequacies of the standard model.And anyway, the cosine of the Weinberg angle is exactly 17/19.So there.
