PROFESSOR LISA RANDALL, THEORETICAL PHYSICIST AND AUTHOR: Right, that's my hypothesis right there.
MATT WORDSWORTH: So how does that kill the dinosaurs? I had not realised until I started researching for the book how much there is.
Randall, the bestselling author of Warped Passages, is an expert in both particle physics (the study of the smallest objects we know of) and cosmology (the study of the largest).
In Knocking on Heaven’s Door, she explores how we decide which scientific questions to study and how we go about answering them.
Hers is a world of warped geometry, sink-holes and branes — a world that fills glaring gaps in current thinking, and can finally explain why gravity is so ‘weak’!Keeping the newsstand to your right, proceed along Brattle St. The Brattle will be on the left-hand side of the street.The building is shared with Algiers Cafe and Alden & Harlow Restaurant, and the theatre entrance is on the left side of the building—look for the sidewalk poster case and marquee. Harvard physicist Lisa Randall is no doubt a very bright physicist.Her specialty is multidimensional string theory -- high-powered stuff.
