Le physicien Lee Smolin parle du fonctionnement de la communauté scientifique : pour reprendre ses mots "nous nous battons et argumentons de toutes nos forces", mais chacun accepte que la prochaine génération de scientifiques décidera de qui a raison.

Lee Smolin is a theoretical physicist, working mainly in the field of quantum gravity. He's a founding member of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada, and the author of The Trouble With Physics. Full bio
