Quantum Physicists Eager To Hear What Frank At The Pub Reckons They Should Study

Posted by in categories: cosmology, quantum physics

Actually, I know many scientists and techies who hang out with the average Joe or Jill to get their minds off of being 1 dimensional and as a result gives them the recharge they need for innovation and creativity.

Quantum physicists studying the edges of our understanding of the universe are reportedly very eager to hear what Frank down at the local reckons they should study next, following Treasurer Scott Morrison’s warning that research should pass the ‘pub test’.

Morrison warned against esoteric, pointless research that costs an abundance of public money and has only lead to major, world-changing breakthroughs in unexpected areas a few times. Instead, the Treasurer has advised that before engaging in any boring and elitist research that only people specifically studying the field would care about, scientists should head down to the pub and check in with Frank to see what he thinks.

“We’ve very excited about this prospect,” said one researcher. “I’m curious to see if Frank will want to push us towards completing the standard model of matter, you know, the search for the graviton — will he prefer it if we go in depth on dark matter and really try and crack that code — who knows, really! It’s all up to Frank.
