CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Jan. 28 (UPI) -- U.S. cosmologists have proposed ancient light absorbed by neutral hydrogen atoms could be used to test certain predictions of string theory......Professor Benjamin Wandelt suggests absorption features in the 21-centimeter spectrum of neutral hydrogen atoms could be used for such a test.


I am wondering if this "project" will actually get off the ground. I kind of doubt it as to the size of the array of telescopes that would be needed to do it. Sounds good in theory, but not to probable.

Yeah, it's unlikely. Sounds like the array would have to be huge. Still, I reckon scientists will eventually work out some way of testing string theory. This is just the start. Thanks for the heads up.

I agree, the array would be of astronomical size. But, hey ya never know, you have to start somewhere. Something to keep an eye out for. We need to at least test all of the theories out there, if it becomes possible to do such a large task.
