I've been waiting for this since I started reading Michio Kaku.
what I hope
will happen is that we will finally start to get a grasp on these questions that might be answered by this expiriment:
Are there extra dimensions, as predicted by various models inspired by string theory, and can we "see" them?
What is the nature of dark matter and dark energy?
The first question is the most interesting to me, as that it would provide a "hint" or "clue" as to whether we're going in the right direction as
far as extra dimensions go. As stated in some of Michio Kaku's works, though, the entire planet
does not posses enough power to prove this
theory for years to come unless we have a breakthrough in energy production.
Hence the next question to be answered. Many scientists believe the answer to an almost exponentially endless (and perhaps the ultimate destruction
you speak of) energy could be utilized from dark matter/energy, something we know literally nothing about. But, eventually, dark matter may be the
energy source we need to power an extra-dimensional device.
