This (probably apocryphal) quote by George Orwell came to mind:

“We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

Haven't read the article, but I'd like to add my two cents here.

Is it a hoax? Most probably - but aren't experimentation and testing the bedrock of science? If it is a hoax, then carefully planned experiments, and confirmation other scientists repeating the experiment will quickly expose the hoax.

The greater scientific "sin" is to dismiss something you don't understand a priori. Many things in nature don't "make sense": the dual nature of light, the existence of a proteinaceous infectious particles, cancer-causing virus, heck the whole textbook of quantum physics.

None of those are "common sense."
