Because eclipse's aren't new in the field, they aren't providing a huge amount of new data not already obtained, and most major deductions that can be obstained,>>94690880
such as this one, can already be done. The comic points out that eclipse's are cool, but they aren't exactly valuable in terms of scientific knowledge as no-one's forming any new theories around them, or theories that rely on them for proof.
It's like asking an explosives expert whether bonfire night will revolutionise the industry, or whether chemists are excited about the potential of paracetamol. They're useful, and they do appreciate them, but they're aren't revolutionary.
There's going to be hell to pay when people actually research some scientific history, look up the ultra violet crisis, and start using 'but scientists were wrong about that, why can't they be wrong about this' for stupid reasons like climate change denial or fucking their dog.
