Quotes

"This evocative picture, tightly constrained by mathematics, requires more than three space dimensions and supersymmetry, although there is (so far) no evidence for either" he added
...emitted radio-frequency radiation using a radio telescope, with a dish upup to perhaps 100 m across, rather than the smaller version they will use. "You could easily find much bigger mirrors in the world" he says. Döbrich points out that in terms of optical measurements, their mirror is a very good choice
...But it's the "intellectual shifts" he wants to call attention to: "[the unlearning of] the hard-won lessons of the Great Depression, the return to pre-Keynesian fallacies and prejudices." The application of such fallacies prolonged the crisis; the ongoing expression of such prejudices would make worse "the mess we're in."
...His approach "has some important advantages and is simpler to fabricate for experimental tests." Richard Adhikari has written about high-tech for leading industry publications since the 1990s and wonders where it's all leading to...
