MoSE will not work


[Ed. Note: what follows is a chronological list of all the stories related to MoSE that have been published on this site over three years. In light of the recent news that test scheduled for Nov. 4 has been scratched due to excessive vibration, I thought a reprise of these stories would be useful. They seem to point to one inevitable conclusion: MoSE will not work. It will just keep being delayed.]
