Physics has been the forerunner of much of modern science, but mankind supposedly lacks the courage of its convictions. In the early 1960s, steady state was in retreat and a group at Princeton University began working on implications of an earlier hot stage. String theory is mind numbing in its mathematical complexity, and predictions are very difficult. As a flashlight for showing where to step, the string theory seems useless, as it has made no prediction of a past event not anticipated by conventional, inflated Big-Bang theory.
