Exactly.  This is a process I highly recommend and try to strictly
adhere to myself.  I'm not a freshman Philosophy of Science student,
you know. :)

You're right, it doesn't take a crisis to get innovation, but it is a
nice catalyst.

Yup.  I regard all news about any new superconductor collider projects
with a degree of skepticism, after being so excited about them in the
past and then being let down when they're scrapped for lack of
funding.  That is a truly great frontier of science, and we're so
green when it comes to a lot of the things we could learn from it.
