“We apologize to experimentalists for having no idea what is the mass of the
Higgs boson and for not being sure of its couplings to other particles. For these
reasons we do not want to encourage big experimental searches for the Higgs
boson, …”

Lessons from the Past
“I arrived at the interesting result that
gravitational waves do not exist, …”
Lessons from the Past
“The essential result of this investigation is a
clear understanding as to why [black holes] do
not exist in physical reality.”
Einstein
“I have done a terrible thing. I have postulated a
particle that cannot be detected.”
Lessons from the Past
Pauli
“It is conceptually interesting, if not astrophysically
very important, to calculate the precise apparent
shape of a black hole. Unfortunately, there seems to
be no hope of observing this effect.”
Lessons from the Past
Bardeen
“I did not continue with studying the CMB, because I
had trouble imagining that such tiny disturbances to
the CMB could be detected ...”
Peebles
“I thought that it would take 1000 years to detect the
logarithmic dependence of the power spectrum.”
Mukhanov
