It would appear the European science establishment has the same disease. What do you think the very large telescope they built in Chile is called? Here’s a clue. It’s generally known by it’s initials “VLT”. Then there is the Large Hadron Collider which is a large thing that collides hadrons. “Hadron” mind has been misprinted on occasion to general hilarity – well in physics you get your laughs where you can. But the Multi-Cubic Kilometre Neutrino Telescope or KM3NeT takes the last custard cream from the packet.
