Don't look now but Jean-Baptiste Lamarck is being rehabilitated. Wasn't the "science settled"??
This could be really and truly huuuuuuge.
(But I wouldn't bet the ranch on it yet.)
And then there's this: if the EM drive really works, everybody--Newton, Einstein, Maxwell, quantum physics--is wrong.
"Astronomers just discovered one of the most massive objects in the universe hiding behind the Milky Way"
And just how significant do you feel today?
. . . researchers estimate that Vela could contain somewhere between 1,000 and 10,000 trillion stars.
It's apparently not just me.
I was glad to read this. When I encountered quantum mechanics in college, I thought it was too strange to believe. But then I thought 1) I probably just didn't understand it, 2) so what if Schrodinger's cat and "spooky action at a distance" didn't accord with my intuition; Newton's theory wasn't intuitive to many of his contemporaries and Big Al's stuff was pretty strange, at first, too, and 3) the fact that it just works, all the time and in every instance, was a really good argument in its favor.
But Steven Weinberg, a Nobel laureate and 83 years old, now has some doubts.
Science could well be solving another problem.
A multiverse would be kinda fun, but it's also really weird.
Answer, in short: it appears to be evidence consistent with the Trivers-Willard hypothesis.
"No one" is used advisedly.
But if you solve one, please do drop me a line.
Scientists are still trying to understand why it was so deadly.
