discovery

I have a huge geek-crush on theoretical physicist Lisa Randall.  I’m in Washington DC at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting and I saw her speak today.  She said this about LHC and the new frontier in particle physics, which I think could be said of science in general and other things as well:

“Is this the end of the story?  It would really be a coincidence if we just happened to live at the time when we discovered the end of the story.  We think there’s more.”
