Splitting Time from Space—New Quantum Theory Topples Einstein's Spacetime

Splitting Time from Space—New Quantum Theory Topples Einstein's Spacetime: Scientific American: "Was Newton right and Einstein wrong? It seems that unzipping the fabric of spacetime and harking back to 19th-century notions of time could lead to a theory of quantum gravity."

Glad that people are continuing to come up with ideas for quantum gravity that avoid the over-parameterisation of string theory. I still like the sound of "Loop quantum gravity", I wonder how that is getting on.

RT @jburnmurdoch: Most useful thread I’ve read on the dynamics of Covid transmission. By an expert, and packed full of links to evidence. Indoor spaces and or prolonged face-to-face contact account for large majority of Covid transmission. Walking past someone in street/park much lower risk. https://t.co/fnMrDjAxfq
