Quantum Gravity For Real

Indian physicists have put forward a new way to test for “quantum gravity” — the field of theoretical physics that attempts to reconcile Einstein’s theory of general relativity and quantum mechanics. If successful, the test — which is based on “loop quantum gravity” — would be the first ever experimental evidence for quantum gravity. The experiment involves observing a dying star dimming briefly at the end of its life, rather than undergoing a “naked singularity” to create an ultra-dense fireball.
