I'm sure they'll get there eventually, I just have difficulty maintaining interest when (at 62) it doesn't look as if it'll happen in my lifetime.I love physics at the Newtonian mechanics end of the scale, but the cutting edge stuff leaves me disillusioned and impatient at the slow progress.
Like you, I love Newtonian physics. It works, has been tried and tested for over three centuries, both mathematically and in practice. The Apollo missions to the Moon used Newtonian mechanics to calculate their trajectories.
But as you rightly say, the cutting-edge stuff of modern Physics must leave everyone with a feeling of disappointment. It seems like Physicists have lost the plot.
