Man-made disasters: why technology and organizations (sometimes) fail

N. Pidgeon, M. O'Leary

Ambiguity Is Kinda Good Sometimes

The dangerous irrelevance of string theory [article]

Eva Silverstein
2017 arXiv   pre-print
It is important to take into account the phenomenon of dangerous irrelevance: over long times or large field ranges, physics can become sensitive to higher scales than the input energies.  ...  This builds in part from the development of the string landscape, which is neither random nor an abdication of science as has sometimes been suggested.  ...  The scientific research described here is supported in part by the National Science Foundation under grant PHY-0756174.  ...

Prehistoric dangers and contemporary prejudices
