    The public "right to know"

    Some people have agendas, and will feign clever questions to entrap scientists, astronauts and organisations.

    Others do not have agendas, but have genuine scientific questions.

    I am not advocating ATM or conspiracy theory, but am asking whether, for example in this case, the LIGO team in a democracy has a scientific, moral or even legally enforceable obligation (under German law?) to respond in writing to a 3-short straightforward question petition as to the technical accuracy, and hence validity, of their results, in the purported public interest of maintaining confidence in scientific integrity in the pursuit of novel human knowledge?
