True, science is reaching limits on experimental costs (e.g., Texas accelerator was cancelled due to overwhelming costs over budget), however we have no idea what the future will bring, especially since the last 50 years have brought a tremendous wealth of knowledge. I would say that these last 50 years have been just as rewarding as any 50 year period produced in the 18th century. In terms of the last 10 years, the success has kept rolling even though we seem to be asking more questions recently than answering.

However, this is what you expect of a code. Actually, one never knows for certain if they have decoded a code completely. All you can do is look at what you have deciphered and decide if that decoded message is meaningful. In the case of today's science, we have found very meaningful information which is being put to use in new technologies. Someday that progress might all come to an end, but I think the universe is constructed such that this process will only end once the last remaining player lands on Boardwalk.
