I have nothing on (major) topic to add, but on topic to this sentence,
look out for the name Burkhart Heim in the realm of modern Physics. His
theories might potentially be very important over the next few years. He
seems to have created a Grand Unified Theory Of Everything, though his
work is poorly understood, and he has now passed away.
First major result? Predicting the masses (and some other properties) of
subatomic particles with 1,000,000 times the accuracy of any other theory.
Most exciting potential result? A hyperspace drive that reduces the trip
to Mars to a couple of hours, and puts the nearest stars just a few months
His work is extremely contraversial at the moment, but if it turns out to
be good, it could be very interesting indeed.
