Why a New Idea to Search for Extra Dimensions in the Pulse of Spacetime Is Turning Heads
By Vasudevan Mukunth on 07/07/2017

If physicists do find that gravitational waves have travelled through dimensions other than the four we live in, it will be the start of a revolution in physics.

.....David Andriot and Gustavo Lucena Gómez, both junior scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam, said that scientists could use a super-sensitive instrument used to detect gravitational waves to uncover elusive signs of extra dimensions in those waves. While scientists are still debating if this could be a legitimate suggestion, considering it has been spelled out only on paper, some are beginning to speculate if this could have something to do with theories of quantum gravityhttps://thewire.in/155384/dimensions-ligo-breathing-quantum-kaluza-gravity/
