The authors seriously questioned and still continue to question the overemphasised “prospects” in the past of the so-called FELIX project in the domain of ultrahigh-energy astroparticle physics and the optimism that was nourtured around it. This was and is somewhat irrational because there is so far no dearth in the accumulated data for the testing of the models for particle production. But that up to now we failed to build up a really and concretely standard theory of particle production is due to our poverty in outllook and philosophy. The authors picked up and pointed out the very basic down-to-earth observables which even in the available energy range would really suffice to judge the merits and successes of any of the models. That the spirit of FELIX-like proposals might resurrect with just some other name even after the present (and temporary?) setback of the FELIX project remains the point of concern to the authors.
