Quantum Gravity Is A Wild Goose Chase


Quantum theory and Einstein’s general relativity are the two main pillars of modern physics.

Unfortunately, the two theories are incompatible, leading vast numbers of theoretical physicists to attempt to unite them in a theory of quantum gravity, with a notable lack of success.
