The Tenth Dimension

Superstrings for beginners, explained here.

Curtsy to reader (and former schoolmate) Hugh.

And if you think a ten-spatial-dimension Universe is something miraculous, you should see the pictures of his baby daughter.

That a Universe could exist with a place in it for concepts such as Love, that is the real miracle. The mechanics are interesting too, of course, but somehow... less important.

Nifty looking site, I'll have to look at it when I'm at work (and have broadband!). As for children: Remember the line from Heinlein's tale about Lazarus Long?

"That's impossible!"

"So's a baby, son."
