i don't know what `pure' means below, but astronomy hasn't
`given up' on cosmology. the next generation of surveys
could give interesting limits on parameters in the standard

this isn't a `finished' science. it's research, not a school
lesson. so things happen at different times. that doesn't
mean that we won't get answers - be a bit more patient.
