Excellent. How many megabucks/year is the operational budget of that
facility, and what is the business model?

If you're operating in a business that people consider pure cookery, you
may not afford one thing: to look like one. Given that gigantic handicap,
one would take great pains to appear extremely vanilla if not boring bland
professional. Searching for arches on top of mount Ararat or building
research facilities that look like a temple or a mandala does not make you
look good.

Until you want to found a cult, of course.
