iPod iChing - Relativistic Deviations

So, it is friday again, and given how serious all the physics blogs have become, we continue Sean's tradition of tackling the great problems of the modern world through the miracles of modern technology.

Oh, wise and wonderful iPod: is there a significant deviation from Newtonian gravity on sub-millimeter scales? If so, is this a new force, or a modification to GR? Is the post-Newtonian correction attractive or repulsive?

Whoosh, the randomizer whooshes...


  • The Covering: Once in A Lifetime - Talking Heads
  • The Crossing: Flesh and Blood - Roxy Music
  • The Crown: Ah Violetta - La Traviata
  • The Root: The Space Between - Roxy Music
  • The Past: Love Her Madly - The Doors
  • The Future: Poprocks and Coke - Green Day
  • The Questioner: Old Man - Spilverk Þjóðanna
  • The House: 15.5 Remake - Smith and Selway
  • The Inside: Identify the Beat - Marc Smith vs Safe'n'Sound
  • The Outcome: Tondeleyo - Björk


As always, the Key as explained by Sean

Wow. Ouch.

So, we can agree on events and obstacles.
The Crown seems a bit tragic, if glamorous.
Root - well, yes, that's spot on.
Past - well makes sense in context
The Future! - Where there's truth. You know I'll be there...
The Questioner is just cruel...
The House and Inside are suitable obscure - Unclassifiable on iTunes... ;-) - no lyrics to speak of, just fast dance beat.
and the Outcome - is true love on a sunny beach.


So, extra dimensions rear their head again.
The theme of the answer is attraction. And the Inside looks intriguing.

I delve into the oracular wisdom as a High Priest of Science, and pronounce: there is a sub-mm deviation, it is driven by dimensional modifications, not new couplings, and it is attractive at the perturbative level.

So there.

I also love the blog, but I differ from the previous posters in that I am not a spambot!

Anyway, good timing on the question, given the newest post on Cosmic Variance.
