Two constants to rule us all
Interesting article from my favorite science journal, Nature, on two physicists who think they’ve identified two constants that can describe the whole universe. I like reading this stuff because it makes my mind wander in various cosmological directions and eventually I wind on back to my center. Like, where did I come from? How am I connected to everything else in the universe? Science and cosmology, specifically, makes me a better person…I think.
How many physical constants does it take to describe the Universe? The answer, according to a team of physicists in Brazil, is just two.
