If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread.

Stephen Hawking was the greatest theoretical gravitational physicist since Einstein. Using the assumptions of Einstein's classical theory of gravity, general relativity, plus reasonable conditions on the energy density and pressure of matter, Hawking showed that the observed expansion of the universe would imply that the universe had a beginning, a big bang singularity at the beginning of time....

Hawking has achieved astonishing things for a person with his issues, however, he's misrepresented as a physicist. He isn't viewed as that persuasive among physicists by and large, and a lot of his thoughts have not gotten a warm gathering from the material science group. He shows write my essay cheap up in numerous TV shows and documentaries since he's remarkable and in a split second unmistakable, yet that barely implies he's the main critical physicist working today. There are many others similarly as gifted and vital.

Flo,

that may be fair enough in terms of the current state of consensus, but otherwise doesn't say much. And material science hasn't been very successful in anything other than its willful application to producing the modern toxic chemical soup. The rationale for Chernobyl hasn't persuaded me, the RBMK1000 series after all is a massively scaled up version of what in the west are constrained to small experimental slow breeder reactors. So on that score, while neither Hawking nor others have claimed him to be the last word on anything, at least Hartle-Hawking does recognize and pose the first question. jrc

Flo, "write my essay cheap" is not only sneakily placed but poor grammar. Shame on you.

Don,

Sympathy for your loss of a great friend and mentor.

To me, the most significant turn of history is in the black hole information paradox in which you played a major role. Even though there is opposition, what information preservation tells us is that Einstein was more right than wrong about a generalized theory. Personally, I was deeply affected by Hawking's reversal of himself -- as deeply as I felt about Popper's reversal on Darwinian evolution.

Details may be lacking, yet it takes a general framework to unify the seemingly disparate elements of nature, and a courageous mind to construct it.

Dear Don Page,

Unfortunately, Stephen Hawking was completely wrong about there ever having been an invisible finite big-bang explosive commencement of any invisible abstract universe, and the possible existence of any finite invisible abstract black holes somehow existing in finite invisible space.

Irrefutable evidence exists that conclusively proves that the earth had a real VISIBLE surface for millions of regular Gregorian calendar years before y’all decided to conduct your finite LHCb experiment at CERN that recently announced results that put the theory of (finite invisible) Supersymmetry into ever growing doubt.

It logically follows that Nature must have designed the only REAL VISIBLE structure of the real planet earth, and the real VISIBLE Universe the real VISIBLE earth am contained in, obtainable.

The real Universe consists only of one real single unified VISIBLE infinite surface eternally occurring in one single infinite dimension that am always mostly illuminated by finite non-surface light.
