MooPig Share the Science Department :: "How to Explain the Unknowable"

Physics, the Next Generation
Mashed articles by Pat Darnell  |  Dec 27, 2013  |  Bryan TX

I don't want to scare you now, but our greatest minds work in teams. At the top are the Theorists, accompanied by mathematicians, surrounded by interns, funded by corporations, ... and so on.

I would have been a Physicist except I couldn't handle the math.

Physics: What We Do and Don’t Know by Steven Weinberg | The New York Review of Books: EXCERPT  | "... "So far, this anthropic speculation seems to provide the only explanation of the observed value of the dark energy. In the standard model and all other known quantum field theories, the dark energy is just a constant of nature. It could have any value. If we didn't know any better we might expect the density of dark energy to be similar to the energy densities typical of elementary particle physics, such as the energy density in an atomic nucleus. But then the universe would have expanded so rapidly that no galaxies or stars or planets could have formed. For life to evolve, the dark energy could not be much larger than the value we observe, and there is no reason for it to be any smaller.

Such crude anthropic explanations are not what we have hoped for in physics, but they may have to content us. Physical science has historically progressed not only by finding precise explanations of natural phenomena, but also by discovering what sorts of things can be precisely explained. These may be fewer than we had thought. (LINK) ..."

MooPig Physical Science Department is a windowless room in our basement, where few seldom go. Think about it; your kid grows up and is stellar in his math and language skills, goes through college like a hot butter knife, then tells you he wants to be a Physicist. eh?

It's like telling your dad who pours concrete for a living that you want to become a cloistered monk. One time I told my Dad I wanted to become a psychiatrist. That went over like Katrina with Dad.

When discussing cosmology and theory of Everything, I read about "teams of Physicists." so we Google, and search Reddit, for "Teams of Physicists," with this result: " of theoretical physicists led by researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University .... "

You know where I'm going with this, don't you? I want to know who is the left tackle and the pulling guard on the team. I want a breakdown on various conferences and bowl games schedules. I want, want, want ... to know who the team members are! Don't you want to know?

The question is how long until football references are used to describe breaking developments in Physics, by teams of Physicists? I want to know how to play Fantasy Physics. If only we could pick and choose our teams and pit them against each other.
Chasing the Higgs Boson: "... At the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, two armies of scientists struggled to close in on physics' most elusive particle. (DENNIS OVERBYE. Published March 5, 2013. LINK) ..."
TWO ARMIES of scientists ... Aha! There's your reference to Armies! That'll work. But the question remains: for Physics, Cosmology, and Anthropic events to be trending at the top of Newsvine's will need more than some sports references in their jargon. Let's all get behind that.

WOW ... I really strayed there. Sorry 'bout that.

The rigors that bring society all its consumable products and tech's is found in the work of teams of physicists. Isn't it about time for John Q Internet to have a good source of what these teams are up to? If Physical Science wants to expand its views to include the improvement of the human condition it might have to loosen up its hard line math models and include some sports references to its viewpoints.
