From a bubble of fluid can tell us about the cosmic space
I can smell a new model of Universe coming:
1. A bubble of fluid:
"Droplets became a prime example of “universality,” which describes events that play out exactly the same way time and again, even across different materials and under substantially different conditions. [...] A recent study has identified universality
in a new system: bubbles trapped in a narrow tube."
2. Underpant gnomes
3. The Universe and string theory:
"The simulation spit out a video
[of "black strings" splitting into two] that felt surprisingly familiar, Pretorius said. It looked just like a fluid stream breaking into drops: A large bead formed, leaving behind a thinner stream that, in turn, bulged into smaller drops connected by even thinner streams, and so on. Fluid behavior suggests that the strings should eventually snap into spherical black hole droplets. But without a particulate theory of quantum gravity, the simulation crashes as it approaches the pinch-off point."
The story made me suspect that hydrodynamical cosmological models might have something in common with hydrodynamics... Oh wait!
I am annoyed by pseudoscientists stretched on so-called test-beds: "let's torture 200 mice to simulate a human organism" or "let's produce a crystals with strange symmetries to study cosmology", and now bubbles solving the string theory. A mouse is a mouse and not a human, atoms are atoms and not cosmos, bubbles are not standard particles!
