More Views on the Landscape

How would such a "landscape" bring string theory into better comprehension? The
Most perfect fluid
in face of strong coupling?

Yet at the other end, there is no deviation?

Eric Adelberger on Aug 12th, 2005 at 2:37 pm It is true that we are seeing an anomaly at shorter length scales but we have to show first that the anomaly is not some experimental artifact. Then, if it holds up, we have to check if the anomaly is due to new fundamental physics or to some subtle electromagnetic effect that penetrates our conducting shield. We are now checking

Lubos being on top of it, reveals new paper.

New Constraints on Yukawa-Type Deviations from Newtonian Gravity at 20 Microns

Recent theories of physics beyond the Standard Model have predicted deviations from Newtonian gravity at short distances. In order to test these theories, we have a built an apparatus that can measure attonewton-scale forces between gold masses separated by distances on the order of 25 microns. A micromachined silicon cantilever was used as the force sensor, and its displacement was measured with a fiber interferometer. We have used our measurements to set bounds on the magnitude alpha and length scale lambda of Yukawa-type deviations from Newtonian gravity; our results presented here yield the best experimental limit in the range of lambda=6--20 microns.

Don't cater to Intelligent Design debate Please?

I would say attitudes from respectable scientists had more to do it with then any intelligent design debate. Any repeated pattern of news, associated. This debate was fuelled.

While respected the stand taken against any position on "intelligent design" it would have been outright diagreement with the religious connotation for sure, then argue the basis of science assign to a differing group opinion. I stayed away from the source of this debate arising, as I watched Sean, Peter Woit and others villify and characterise(news jumped on this), a respective theoretical view, based on such association.

This hurt propsective views on recogniton of theoretical position.

The debate had to be rested in science, and any distinction of religion dropped from the conversation. Only the reason why such rejection, and such slogans pasted on other views contained. Lee Smolins attempt to draw other so science, and Lubos's attempted to clarify current scientific data. Argue then, Georgi Dvali's moon measure?
