The first-ever image of quantum entanglement 'The image is an elegant demonstration of a fundamental property of nature, seen for the very first time. This demonstrates that one can detect the signature of a Bell-type nonlocal behavior within one image.' https://t.co/lC8liVJpci https://t.co/QuTHh9ZQeK

By far the best, most comprehensive, and up-to-date book on obtaining cosmology from string/M-theory. I cannot recommend any book in this field more than this one! I will be sharing thread-style ~ 4 pages per day, starting with the all-too-important string/M-theory duality web. https://t.co/0PiPnq7sL5

“I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” R.I.P. Rutger Hauer https://t.co/BOi30dpjq7

"Whatever anyone thinks should or shouldn’t qualify as science, the fact is that science is done by people. Some of those people are rationalists, some are empiricists, and some are pragmatists; and no matter what rules are imposed, people break them." https://t.co/srVQDseZKn

"Only when they must choose between competing theories do scientists behave like philosophers." — Thomas Kuhn "Kuhn can't take seriously that there's some one full, objective, true account of nature. Does this mean that he doesn't take truth seriously? Not at all!" — Ian Hacking https://t.co/QjDRzdQLbo

"Thus, the task is, not so much to see what no one has yet seen; but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees." — Erwin Schrödinger was born #OTD in 1887 https://t.co/G7evRvq9kq https://t.co/bQDXcUuILq https://t.co/swyMjT0fWU

“The trouble with most of us is that we'd rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.” ― Norman Vincent Peale “Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson https://t.co/UvRbe3QrEu

“We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry. There will come with the greater love of science greater love to one another.” — Maria Mitchell https://t.co/EfrRAcARo8

"The union of the mathematician with the poet, fervor with measure, passion with correctness, this surely is the ideal." "Our science is a drop, our ignorance a sea." — William James died #OTD in 1910 https://t.co/rM0RZwZHVC https://t.co/UzSBH2Fs1n

We Went To The Moon. Why Can’t We Solve Climate Change? “It is time for all of us to accept that climate change is the challenge of our time... It may be a moon shot — but it’s the only shot we’ve got.” https://t.co/NyetvbrS9R https://t.co/ovFdmBC9DJ

'Prominent scientists were all saying that science did not work as philosophers such as Popper claimed. There isn't one scientific method. After Kuhn, the growing conviction has been that science is not the pristine singular enterprise philosophers had been trying to describe.' https://t.co/D4Qd2SCxjh

'Text mining of scientific literature can uncover hidden knowledge and pure text-based extraction can establish basic scientific knowledge.' "I was pretty surprised when I saw not only the predictions but also the reasoning behind the predictions" https://t.co/1vkxwkK5CZ https://t.co/6hlVY4SoKe

“Can an idea be beautiful? Mathematicians often describe arguments as “beautiful” or “dull,” and famous scientists have claimed that mathematical beauty is a guide toward the truth. Do laypeople, like mathematicians and scientists, experience mathematics aesthetically?” Yes! https://t.co/r2iyTr5P2F

"I came from studying quantum corrections to Einstein’s general relativity... In all the models, the quantum corrections were infinite. The aim was to find a magical model in which all the infinities would cancel. Supergravity [a cornerstone of string theory] is that Holy Grail." https://t.co/YVcXpW5ZiT
