Good to see Laura Mersini-Houghton’s work recognised as important news on Newsnight. The work of a scientist not hidebound by fictions of the standard model, unlike the emperor’s new clothes over at CERN.

Hopefully we’ll see funding diverted to real science in future.
Re-watched this morning (I came across it by accident yesterday, and didn’t catch the whole thing). Jeremy asks the right question – isn’t this really about the limits of what science can know, and how much this kind of science is relevant to human knowledge. (I’ll have to see if I can rip the video.)
Different piece, from Rick commenting on Facebook. Big Bang Blunder Burst Multiverse Bubble. (Hat tip to Dawkins Foundation whose hint of a saving grace is the and between science and reason.) (I think this is the “twisty B-mode CMBR polarisation” evidence against the big bang Penrose referred to in Bang Goes the Big Bang above.)
… should make the scientific community contemplate
the implications for the future of cosmology …
Some interesting points in the comment thread too …
… pure politicking …
… skeptical that science reporting is reliable and helpful to scientific enterprises …
The one thing people can agree on is that science is not religion, but sadly most reported science is not science either. Wake-up science.
