Ars Technica: Data mining astronomical records fails to falsify Einstein

Ars Technica: Data mining astronomical records fails to falsify Einstein. “There are experiments, like the last couple of generations of particle accelerators, that create data so fast that no team of scientists, no matter how dedicated or large, can hope to analyze all of it. And there are facilities that generate data for one purpose, but that data can be used in innovative ways to yield new insights in other fields. Mining all this information is really important for very slow processes, where the data accumulates over periods that extend through generations, like climate change, and now orbital mechanics.”
