Fuzzballs v Black Holes
A radical theory replaces the cosmic crunchers with fuzzy quantum spheres, potentially solving the black-hole information paradox and explaining away the Big Bang and the origin of time.

Why physics and astronomy communities must take diversity issues seriously in order to do good science.

Why Time Might Not Be an Illusion
Einstein’s relativity pushes physicists towards a picture of the universe as a block, in which the past, present, and future all exist on the same footing; but maybe that shift in thinking has gone too far.

The Complexity Conundrum
Resolving the black hole firewall paradox—by calculating what a real astronaut would compute at the black hole's edge.

A very nice suggestion. This was how Physics used to be done when it was called Natural Philosophy in the days of Newton and Leibniz.

And before then I can imagine Aristotle, Plato, Euclid, etc forming a circle around a Parmenides and Zeno at the centre. The purpose of which is to grind their fringe theory to either absurdity (reductio ad absurdum) or approval and acclaim.

Contention should be the goal, not acquiescence...

"In our new special edition of the FQXi podcast, we ask, what is the best way to interest and excite the public about physics, especially foundational physics? Do we just stick to the facts, or do we need slogans, explosions, and, ahem, essay and video contests?"

So, it the spirit of contention, not acquiescence, why not include a fringe theory du jour for all others to pile on for a while and pull it apart? What...
