For the past century and one half, our most powerful microscopes have relied on acceleration of particles, so much of the work depends on virtual rather than real photons. Is the LHC our last, best microscope?
Sabine H. and like minded colleagues would like it to be, and they have some good arguments, but I can't agree. I suppose that my opinion is driven mostly by emotion, but I just hate the thought of giving up on our long, amazingly successful journey "inward bound" to borrow the phrase from Abraham Pais.
