“For last year's words belong to last year's language And next year's words await another voice.” -T.S. Eliot
It's the end of the year, and so you know what that means: time for lazy recaps of "the year that was" everywhere you look. Why settle for last year's news, though, when you can start making predictions about what next year will hold?
I make 10 bold predictions for what 2016 will hold, including:
- the first detection of a gravitational wave,
- a new record for the smallest exoplanet atmosphere with water,
- that the "super-Earth" discovered in the outer Solar System actually turns out to be smaller than Pluto,
- and that all direct detection efforts for dark matter will come up empty, again.
Plus, a preview of who I think will win the Nobel Prize in Physics next year!

Your second prediction is a bit of a Nonstradamus, innit? Along the lines of "The coming year will see more records broken in athletics". Or "Michael Bay will create a movie with more explosions than ever seen in a movie before".
You miseed this prediction for 2015!
Now, how does MOND modify dynamics so as to produce that effect...
self-indulgent little creature aren't you
