From the Bolton News:
ROCK guitars could hold the key to the origins of the universe, hundreds of young science pupils were told.
The Institute of Physics held a lecture in Bolton entitled “Rock in 11 dimensions: where physics and guitars collide”.
And acoustics physicist Dr Mark Lewney told more than 600 youngsters who attended that the vibration of guitar strings may answer unsolved questions about the Big Bang.
This event is just one of a year-long lecture series promoting string theory at schools throughout Great Britain. According to the promotional material the LHC will help verify string theory experimentally (and it will start up in May….).
