Impressions from Henry Tye’s talk July 2, 2007Posted by dorigo in humor, language, news, personal, physics, science.
I hereby admit my inability to report on the talk given by Henry Tye this afternoon at PASCOS, “Brane Inflation: an Update“, for obvious ignorance of the matter discussed therein. I can only offer three passages that for some reason stuck in my mind, while I was trying to grasp the overall picture (my
brane brain tends to find the humorous side of things when everything else fails):
“…We may have a brane, or maybe we don’t“.
“A brane can go down the throat, slower and slower, but it still gets relativistic“.
“some can be excited, and some can be so excited that they have cosmic string size“.
