Today we have an article for budding scientists and affectionados of wacky scientific theories!
1. Is the speed of light somehow tied to the expansion rate of the Universe as a whole?
In 1900, the British physicist Lord Kelvin is said to have pronounced: "There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement." Within three decades, quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of relativity had revolutionized the field. Today, no physicist would dare assert that our physical knowledge of the universe is near completion. (Like they did in 1900.) To the contrary, each new discovery seems to unlock a Pandora's box of even bigger, even deeper physics questions.
Like I said, anyone with a bit of scientific knowledge can probably poo-poo these ideas, but it's the sort of stuff I think about when I'm bored!
