Currently, there are Lacs (+1, 00,000) of scientists working globally and using billions of dollars (yearly).
Very few scientists believes that constants are shortcuts that are created by scientists to fit into the behaviour of the phenomenon that had stopped them to think further to uncover the ultimate truth of science. It is assumed that certain constants are of the fundamental features of nature. The value of the constants cannot be calculated from basic principles and are derived either from laboratory measurements or trial and error method. They are believed to reflect an underlying constancy of nature. However, some constants like Universal Gravitational Constant is regularly adjusted by international committees. Scientists take it for granted that the constants themselves are really constant and the variations in their values are simply the result of experimental errors. This one of the oldest of the constants, shows the largest variations. As the methods of measurement became more precise, the disparity in measurements of G by different laboratories increased.
