SUMMARY: Theorists are working madly to develop the new "Theory of Everything" that will tie together all the forces in the Universe into one unified explanation. Experimenters are also working to come up with ways to test these various theories, and narrow down the ones that actually predict what happens in Nature. One upcoming experiment called LATOR will test how the Sun's gravity bends light emitted by mini-satellites - it will be so precise that many theories will be invalidated if it doesn't find deviations from Einstein's predictions.

Excellent! Unfortunatly it won't stop the those alternative theory people, even if Einstein's theories are shown to be correct, but it will give proponant's of the theory more ammunition.

Now, if the theory turns out to be wrong--now wouldn't THAT make things interesting!!!
