Quotes

...Their latest re paper, published today in the Royal Society Journal, Proceedings of the Royal Society A, is entitled "A medieval multiverse?: Mathematical modelling of the thirteenth century universe of Robert Grosseteste"
...For him, the exciting thing "is not just confirming that inflation happened- many of us already had a pretty good idea that was likely to be the case-but having a chance to figure out exactly how it happened, what it was that drove it, whether there are new particles and new fields that participated in it, and which of the many models could be correct."
...maybe something else is going on," says KICP Deputy Director John Carlstrom, who leads two other experiments that study the universe's first light. "Maybe we need to… allow some new physics in there. Maybe there are more neutrinos. Maybe they're more massive than we thought. Or maybe it's something none of us have thought of yet."
"Supporting the education of young outstanding students will ultimately result in better scientists who are positioned to make significant advances in their field. We can help move research forward through education, and we may very well see today's Gruber Fellows on tomorrow's Gruber Prize rosters" said Sarah Hreha, executive director of the Gruber Foundation
