The only catch is that the bills need to get through Congress by the end of the year, when the current owner of the mine will abandon it. This would be an awesome lab--the "Cape Canaveral of Physics.""

    I hardly think that Canaveral would be the best metaphor if you are looking for the epitome of scientific comparisons....

    It looks more comparable to Poker Flats, AK; certainly not to Johnson or Kennedy (canaveral).

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.

Working...
