The new telescope will test Einstein's General Theory of Relativity to the limit - and perhaps prove it wrong. It is certain to add to the long list of fundamental discoveries already made by radio astronomers including quasars, pulsars and the radiation left over from the Big Bang.

Plus all the other discoveries they will make will certainly be well worth the time, effort and money.

Maybe some say it's not worth the money, time or effort, but nobody worships Al so much that they wouldn't love to see past his ideas to something deeper. We still don't know what gravity is.
