Should research turn a profit? That’s what a few would-be higher-ed reformers argue. But academics say research is a long-term investment. Take the recent likely discovery of the Higgs boson. As far as profit goes, the Higgs is in the red: finding physics’ “God particle” cost billions and took decades. But along the way, says UT physicist Steven Weinberg (who won a Nobel Prize for early theoretical work), researchers invented vital new technology. And a data-sharing method developed by physicists eventually became the Internet. You can’t put a price on that.
