technology and society
Book "Society and Technological Change" seventh edition by Volti. Answere questions the best you can. Thanks!

Answer both questions with a minimum of 70 words per question:Monetary considerations aside, which would you find more personally satisfying: making a scientific discovery or inventing a useful technology? Why? In 1993, the U.S. Congress canceled one of the most ambitious scientific research projects of all time, the superconducting supercollider for high-energy physics. One of the major reasons for canceling the project was its cost, which was estimated to be at least $8.5 billion. In the years that followed, the U.S. government continued to support the international space station, a project that will end up costing more than $100 billion by the time it is completed. Why has one project received financial support while the other was killed? Note: The Large Hadron Collider is operational in Europe.
