We don't need to spend 500 mil to find out the LD can't act
That is not at all what I am saying. To go along with your analogy, Out of that situation we would gain knowledge of how to prevent tradgedys like that in the future. How to build better lifeboats. How to contruct better life preservers. The alternative would be never leaving our backyard. Staying in the same spot we have always been instead of going out and exploring and learning new things.
DS you seem to be all for ocean exploration. The same problems can happen with that as with space exploration.
