Quotes

"This picture not only suggests interesting links with general relativity but the underlying dynamics have also been postulated to influence the formation of optical rogue waves."
"For our final UK arena tour, I decided that "it was time to give TWOTW creator – HG Wells - a chance to ‘have his say’ ", about why he wrote what has become known as the first science fiction story ever written, and its broader meaning to the realreal world we live in."
"I'm still not over the shock," said Mersini-Houghton. "We've been studying this problem for a more than 50 years and this solution gives us a lot to think about... Physicists have been trying to merge these two theories – Einstein's theory of gravity and quantum mechanics – for decades, but this scenario brings these two theories together, into harmony."
"I'm still not over the shock," said Mersini-Houghton. "We've been studying this problem for a more than 50 years and this solution gives us a lot to think about."
