Munchkin branes? Really?

leave a comment »

Michael Bérubé claims in Decomcracy Journal:

[E]ver since the days of Bohr and Heisenberg, general readers have come to expect that physicists will not tell them that force equals mass times acceleration and that what goes up must come down; they expect that physicists will tell them that space-time is curved in the shape of a quantum donut whose jelly filling is composed of black holes that bend through Calabi-Yau space to produce “munchkins-branes.”

This para shows great scientific literacy really.
