Its equipment is aging, its finances dwindling. "For 28 years, we've done what we wanted to do, and there's no reason to stay and generate more of the same data," said the laboratory's founder, Robert G. Jahn, 76, former dean of Princeton's engineering school and an emeritus professor. "If people don't believe us after all the results we've produced, then they never will."". We note that Professor Jahn is also a Vice President of The Society for Scientific Exploration and appropriately this page ( http://www.scientificexploration.org/council.php ) was updated on Monday, December 18, 2007!"
