a theoretical physicist won't be the one who puts man on neighbouring planets.
Obviously, you do not. I feel absolutely comfortable in stating this because my doctorate will be in theoretical and mathematical physics. From your statements, it is obvious that I know more about this than you do.
Without the developments of theoretical physics - in your example special, but also some general relativity - there would be no way that any engineer or experimentalist could begin to do more than think about jumping off the ground. Without theoretical physicists, you would not have a computer because the semi-conductor devices within them rely upon the accuracy of the theory of quantum electrodynamics.
We do far more than you think we do.
