Here at Perimeter, we have an extraordinary challenge, as well as an exceptional chance: to develop the ideas that will reshape our understanding of the universe, just as Einstein did. Bold as this mission may be, there has never been a better time.
We are living in a golden age of data, from the Large Hadron Collider to the Planck Satellite, and an abundance of experiments in between. Information is being gathered at an unprecedented pace. What it is revealing is a universe with astonishing, although deeply puzzling, simplicity. A universe requiring new principles of physics.
