Because. Humans. Explore.

CERN Large Hadron Collider @ YouTube

This is such a great example of promoting science by capturing the imagination. It doesn't have to be about economic development or spinoffs. Does poetry have spinoffs? No, we appreciate it for appreciation's sake. Because poetry is proof of something higher in our collective psyches, of something beyond the daily grind of life, it says "look what we can do!" Why is science any different? We put a man on the moon (yes we did! don't argue with me!) and yes we achieved many spinoffs that have significantly improved life on Earth but is that why we did it? I hope not.
