"Scientists find a practical test for string theory"
It would be nice if this works out.
"Scientists have joked about how string theory is promising . . . and always will be promising, for the lack of being able to test it," said Dr. James Overduin of the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Geosciences at Towson University, first author on the paper. "What we have identified is a straightforward method to detect cracks in general relativity that could be explained by string theory, with almost no strings attached."
