Will Space Travel Destroy the Universe?

Some scientists think that our ability to study the universe with space craft and telescopes might actually be destroying it. It's all part of quantum physics. It's also surfer wisdom.

In the November 21st edition of the Telegraph, Roger Highfield explains that our ability to measure the universe may actually shorten its life, because our observations could trigger another "big bang," which would be the end of our world and the start of another one.

In the November 13th issue of the Telegraph, Highfield writes about "an impoverished surfer [who] has drawn up a new theory of the universe, seen by some as the Holy Grail of physics, which has received rave reviews from scientists."

Garrett Lisi spends most of the year surfing in Hawaii, but has still had time to come up with a new "theory of everything," which includes new atomic particles. His new theory, which he calls "e8," will be able to be tested when the CERN particle accelerator is activated in Geneva, Switzerland in 2008.
