If there is a five percent chance that it's real then they need to get one of these things in the heavens to give it a whirl. Even if it's nothing, sending it up there to find out would save a lot of experimental effort to replicate the results on earth and save a bunch of hand wringing on science blogs.

you could put one on a cubesat and try that, but that's still a lot of money, especially once you factor in the force measurement equipment.
