Annunaki Hieroglyphics Discovered On Coast Of New Jersey
Spectacular Images Cut Into A Salt Marsh To Be Only Seen And Recognized From The Air.
Marshelder Island (Manahawkin), NJ
I was perusing the site Ancient Canal Builders Dot Com and came across these incredible hieroglyphics on Marshelder Island, New Jersey. The site is focusing on ancient coastal canals and it is clear that drainage canals and canals for other purposes were cut into almost the entire east coast of the United States. Now you do not need ETs or Atlanteans to explain them. Clearly, without any documents detailing this work, it predates 'history' and therefore could have been done by anyone, almost. I say almost because one section of the canals are not canals but lines defining various messages.
Now I do know about you, but if you have ever been in a salt marsh, the idea of creating a canal is a monumental task. The water table comes right up to the base of the marsh plants, and is a spongy, soft, wet mess to try to cut into. Even if you remove some of the mats of vegetation and the mud, just to put it into a wheelbarrow makes the wheelbarrow too heavy to move, as the wheels sink into the muck, that is, if you could even get a wheelbarrow into the area to begin with. In Louisiana, at the mouth of the Mississippi, huge canals, thousands of miles of them, were cut by floating barges starting in open water and cutting and dredging their way into areas where drilling for oil would occur. So the task in Mississippi required massive machinery and the canals all connect to deep water where the machinery came from.

So you see from the attached photos that we could have a similar explanation for these ancient canals. Whether that is actually the explanation for these ancient canals is another matter.
But all of a sudden if you zoom in on Google Earth, you see hieroglyphs set into lines with Sumerian measurements. Not to say the Sumerians made the lines, but what is that between the lines? It is hieroglyphs of a type not known previously. As far as I know, there is no interpretation of what these say, nor is there any expert who was ever aware of, studied, or made conclusions about them. Perhaps the messages are in Sumerian. Perhaps they predate the Sumerians, as Sumeria or Sumer is dated to 5,000 years ago. But Sumerian tablets describe the Annunaki, Niburu and mining for gold and creating us as slaves, going back a million years. You would know this if you have read any of the recently deceased Zecharia Sitchin books about what those tablets say, including "The Twelfth Planet" and seven more volumes after that, available in paperback. How old are these messages, and can we preserve them for study? Very old and no.
Even without pole shift, these areas are about to be submerged from rising ocean levels. Count in pole shift where all of New Jersey is about to go under water permanently, and you can see there is no likelihood of this becoming the national park it really should be. Just as Nazca has been featured in the history channel series "Ancient Aliens" and is the best known proof of ET presence on Earth as popularized by Von Daniken, so too could these hieroglyphs and symbols be proof.
So what is 'proof'? We have to remember that on the ground these are nothing but a series of open water wet spots in a marsh, and appear to have no meaning. But from the air they make a pattern of an unmistakable message. Surely salt marshes are alive and growing, and the width of these lines narrows as plants expand; but even with what is left, this is a spectacular site. Also, rising sea levels may have overtaken and obscured many sections of the 'message' but THIS IS NOT NATURAL.
Anyone can theorize that these things are many different things. But being visible only from the air means that flight was necessary to appreciate them. And who had the means of appreciating them from the air?
So take a look and if you have any ideas how to translate them, let me know. If you have been watching the tv show 'Jersey Shore' you know about the area just east of the hieroglyphs. If you live near there and have hip waders, you might walk to the end of Taylor Lane and try to cross the channel at low tide to look at the symbols up close. But be careful, that marsh is all muck and you do not want to get stuck or lost. From the ground there is very little to indicate where you are or where you might be able to go. Based on my experiences with salt marshes, the only time to go is low tide and you could consider it a tip for your safety to keep out of there! Things change when the tide comes in and all of a sudden you cannot see where to put your feet.
A marsh like that can be quicksand. This only makes it more likely an ancient civilization with very high technology made them. Far enough back in time this may have been a dry field, flat and a perfect canvas for messages. But then, where did all the dirt they scooped out go? As you can see, there are no berms or spoil piles of what was removed to make them. This is our national Nazca, and all we will have are photographs from space. Too bad.
As I have said before, Nancy Lieder telepathically answers some written questions by submitting them to the human ET Zetas who give her an answer. Here I had a question about the hieroglyphs at Marshelder Island so I asked her and got the following answer. It makes sense and is very logical, and until you prove differently, I am saying that IS the answer.
On a related topic, if I can ask questions so can you. First of all you have to go to http://poleshift.ning.com and join. Then you should be asking only new questions not asked before. To learn what has been asked, go to http://Zetatalk.com and start reading. Personal questions are not allowed. Questions relating to pole shift are the main focus, with contacting ETs being of equal importance to the issue of spiritual orientation and coming dimensional change.

As I have said before, you cannot make this stuff up. It is the single most incredibly detailed, accurate and really, astonishing body of work since all 14,000 soul readings by Edgar Cayce were put on the internet at the A.R.E. website in Virginia, including his predictions of pole shift.

I know you are very busy, so if you cannot take the time to answer this question, I understand. My question has to do with recently discovered hieroglyhics on the eastern coast of the US using Google Earth. The link for those interested is
Here is one photo of part of the coast of NJ from that website. Are these Annunaki hierglyphs to be seen from the air? What do they mean, and why here? How old are they? It would seem Atlantean times would be a good guess and imagine the manpower and time spent doing it. I think this is absolute proof of ETs on Earth, as if you have ever been in salt marshes, the idea of using that as a canvas for a message is mind boggling. But oh so interesting. Any comments? Thanks
As with the Nazca, Peru hieroglyphs, these designs in New Jersey were meant to be seen from the sky. The hieroglyphs in Peru are high desert and thus survived, while New Jersey has steadily lost elevation during past pole shifts. If the waters of the world were to recede, there would be many MORE such sites with hieroglyphs emerging.
- Their purpose was to guide the rocket ships that shuttled between Earth and the Annunaki home planet, Nibiru. The Annunaki would unload the gold that had been collected on Earth, refresh or replace the mining crews on Earth and load them up with supplies, and then wait on their home planet for the passage.
- All this had to be done AHEAD of the passage, as the outbound Nibiru (aka Planet X) takes off quickly after the actual passage, and the last weeks create too much turmoil for a shuttle to be in transit.
- Then the pole shift, and Earth’s geography would be altered, and then the LONG period before they would return again to collect more gold. There was no TIME to draw new maps. The various places on Earth, with their various hieroglyphs, would aid the returning shuttles next time around to understand what PART of the globe they were flying over.

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has unveiled a previously unseen structure centered in the Milky Way. The feature spans 50,000 light-years and may be the remnant of an eruption from a supersized black hole at the center of our galaxy. Other astronomers studying gamma rays hadn't detected the bubbles partly because of a fog of gamma rays that appears throughout the sky. The fog happens when particles moving near the speed of light interact with light and interstellar gas in the Milky Way. The LAT team constantly refines models to uncover new gamma-ray sources obscured by this so-called diffuse emission. By using various estimates of the fog, Finkbeiner and his colleagues were able to isolate it from the LAT data and unveil the giant bubbles. FULL ARTICLE - CLICK HERE

Shiva Stargate: The Destroyer of Worlds a Con-CERN
"...now I am become Death [Shiva], the destroyer of worlds..."
Physicist Robert Oppenheimer
Supervising Scientist Manhattan Project
On June 18, 2004, an unusual new landmark was unveiled at CERN, the European Center for Research in Particle Physics in Geneva — a 2m tall statue of the Indian deity Shiva Nataraja, the Lord of Dance. The statue, symbolizing Shiva's cosmic dance of creation and destruction, was given to CERN by the Indian government to celebrate the research center's long association with India.
In choosing the image of Shiva Nataraja, the Indian government acknowledged the profound significance of the metaphor of Shiva's dance for the cosmic dance of subatomic particles, which is observed and analyzed by CERN's physicists. The parallel between Shiva's dance and the dance of subatomic particles was first discussed by Fritjof Capra in an article titled "The Dance of Shiva: The Hindu View of Matter in the Light of Modern Physics," published in Main Currents in Modern Thought in 1972. Shiva's cosmic dance then became a central metaphor in Capra's international bestseller The Tao of Physics, first published in 1975 and still in print in over 40 editions around the world.
A special plaque next to the Shiva statue at CERN explains the significance of the metaphor of Shiva's cosmic dance with several quotations from The Tao of Physics. Here is the text of the plaque:
Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, seeing beyond the unsurpassed rhythm, beauty, power and grace of the Nataraja, once wrote of it "It is the clearest image of the activity of God which any art or religion can boast of." More recently, Fritjof Capra explained that "Modern physics has shown that the rhythm of creation and destruction is not only manifest in the turn of the seasons and in the birth and death of all living creatures, but is also the very essence of inorganic matter," and that "For the modern physicists, then, Shiva's dance is the dance of subatomic matter." It is indeed as Capra concluded: "Hundreds of years ago, Indian artists created visual images of dancing Shivas in a beautiful series of bronzes. In our time, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology, religious art and modern physics."

On the radar, the Large Hadron Collider is a particle booster, built to beam up protons in very high speed and opposite directions, until they collide creating a huge amount of energy capable to [b]reproduce similar cosmic conditions that have creating such phenomena as dark matter, antimatter and ultimately the creation of the universe billions of years ago. That's the official explanation provided by the scientists involved with this project, but according to OTHER scientists, as the physicist experts Prof Irina Aref'eva, Dr Igor Volovich, the Astronomer Martin Rees, the physicist Adrian Kent of Cambridge, the space engineer Richard Wagner and the chemist and physicist Ph.D Otto Rossler, the LHC, indeed is a device capable to open black holes. According to some UFO researchers, the LHC could be, indeed, a STARGATE machine, opening "portable" wormholes, what may be related with increase of UFO activity in Europe, lately.
I did some investigation and I'm convinced that the Hadron Collider can be a stargate device, built with a specific purpose and the scientists involved with it, are lying to mankind. I don't know if I hit something, but after the thread I've posted on Above Top Secret forum, exposing the Collider-Stargate conspiracy, the post was closed and some days later my posting privileges on ATS were removed and I was banned.
Thus I decided to put the result of my researchers in the video you are gonna watch now, however I had to make a summary of the information, in order to short the video.
Extra Dimensions and Parallel Universes a Con-CERN
"the Large Hadron Collider might make dragons that might eat us up."
Dr. Arkani-Hamed said concerning worries about the death of the Earth or universe, "Neither has any merit." He pointed out that because of the dice-throwing nature of quantum physics, there was some probability of almost anything happening. There is some minuscule probability, he said, "the Large Hadron Collider might make dragons that might eat us up."
When enter the front doors at CERN and notice the Bronze Shiva Statue at it's entrance and the message is very clear from the world's leading Nuclear Physicist"
Only 2 years ago, the idea of extra dimensions inhabited a nebulous region somewhere between physics and science fiction
Many physicists had already begun to see the up-and-coming string theory as the next major step for theoretical physics. In that theory, everything in the universe is composed of tiny loops, or strings, of energy vibrating in a space-time that has six or seven extra dimensions beyond the seemingly endless three standard dimensions of space and one of time. Conveniently, however, those extra dimensions are compactified, as physicists say, crumpled up in a space so small as to be unobservable
The idea that extra dimensions might be larger—perhaps detectable—was something that scientists mostly talked about “late at night, after a lot of wine,” says Gordon L. Kane, a theorist from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Kane therefore felt he was walking on the wild side when he penned a fictional news story about experimenters discovering extra dimensions.
Kane’s story, which appeared in the May 1998 Physics Today, was one of three winners of an essay contest sponsored by that magazine. Basing his tale on some innovative theorizing published in 1990 by Ignatius Antoniadis of the École Polytechnique in Palaiseau, France, Kane wrote of peculiar sprays of particles yielding “startling data.” He set his experiments in 2011 at a European accelerator, known as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which is currently under construction.
The results could imply the existence of one or two extra spatial dimensions, the story stated, “a surprise to everyone.” Even by the time his article came out, however, the possibility no longer seemed quite as surprising as it had when he wrote it a few months earlier. Between the submission of Kane’s story and its publication, two theoretical studies had come out that suddenly pushed the idea of relatively large extra dimensions into the spotlight.
One study came from a team at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics in Geneva where LHC is being built. It examined the consequences of extra dimensions being 10,000 trillion times larger than the extra dimensions of string theory are typically imagined to be. At the larger size, still only about one-ten-thousandth the size of a proton, the extra dimensions might produce effects detectable by the current generation of particle accelerators or their immediate successors, such as LHC, the researchers found.
The other study argued that certain types of extra dimensions could be even larger, as grand as a millimeter. They might then be accessible not only in colliders but in small-scale, table-top experiments as well, say researchers at Stanford University and the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy.
Today, teams of experimentalists in both the United States and Europe are searching for the signatures of extra dimensions. The hunt for such indicators “is certainly one of the best chances of making a very spectacular discovery in the next couple of years,” says Joseph Lykken of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill.
Meanwhile, the wave of novel, extradimension theory continues to roll on. In the latest splash, researchers have proposed extra dimensions of infinite size.
Imagining any of these extra dimensions isn’t easy. Depending on how many extra dimensions there are, physicists say, they might curl into a simple loop or sphere or bend into a tortuous 6-dimensional pretzel popular in string theory. Every point in the traditional, apparently 4-dimensional universe is then a tiny, multidimensional volume. Theorists suggest that an extra dimension might be on the order of 10–35 meter.
Physicists also measure the extra dimensions in terms of the energy needed to probe them. A particle accelerated to 1 trillion electron volts (TeV) has, according to standard arguments from quantum mechanics, a wave aspect with a wavelength of about 2 x 10–19 m. It can therefore explore facets of the subatomic world on that scale. Doubling the energy means seeing features half that size, and so on. So far, the smallest length scale observable with accelerators is a little greater than 10–19 m.
The idea of extra dimensions dates back to at least the 1920s. At that time, physicist Oskar Klein, building upon work by mathematician Theodor Kaluza, added a curled-up fifth dimension to the familiar universe in an ingenious but unsuccessful attempt to unite the forces of electromagnetism and gravity.
Physicists believe that the four forces—electromagnetic, weak, strong, and gravitational—were joined as a single superforce at the time of the Big Bang. In theory, they could merge only if the forces were about the same strength under conditions of high energy. However, gravity is much weaker than the others.
As some researchers today explore extra dimensions, they are on the lookout for implications regarding unification of the four forces. Other scientists striving for models that unify the forces have found extra dimensions a useful tool.
Testing unification theories directly appears to be impossible, however, since the phenomenon would only occur at energies in the range of 1013 to 1016 TeV. The highest-energy collisions achieved in accelerators today approach only 1 TeV.
CERN theorists Keith R. Dienes, Emilian Dudas, and Tony Gherghetta wondered what would happen if they uncurled one or more of the extra dimensions in string theory to 10–19 m, the largest size that would not already have been detected. To their surprise, they discovered that the three nongravitational forces could unify in the energy range of 1 TeV. This unification could then be observed directly in LHC and indirectly in less-powerful colliders.
They posted their study on the physics archive (http://xxx.lanl.gov/abs/hep-ph9803466) maintained by Los Alamos (N.M.) National Laboratory in March 1998.
For physicists, an energy of 1 TeV was already a landmark. Both theory and experiment had established that a mixing of the electromagnetic and weak forces begins to take place a little below that energy level. Physicists have been troubled because unification of even three forces requires much higher energies. They refer to this puzzle as the hierarchy problem.
Scientists at Stanford University and ICTP used extra dimensions in their attempt to solve the hierarchy problem. They focused first on gravity and looked for a way to make it comparable in strength to the other forces at an energy of about 1 TeV.
They accomplished that feat by hypothesizing extra dimensions that affect only gravity and are as large as 1 mm. Only a yawning gap in the scientific record makes such extra dimensions feasible. While physicists have probed the other forces of nature down to nearly 10–19 m, they’ve made extensive measurements of gravity only down to about 1 centimeter
To describe extra dimensions that would affect gravity alone, the Stanford-Trieste researchers made use of entities known as branes. Those complex, membranous objects, which can have many spatial dimensions themselves, have become a central part of string theory. In some versions of the theory, the universe itself is a brane with three spatial dimensions—a 3-brane—moving through a higher-dimensional space-time.
String theory dictates that any extra dimensions outside a brane affect only gravity. In other words, just the force-carrying particles of gravity, called gravitons, could travel in the space-time beyond the brane, leaving the other forces confined to the brane. By contrast, extra dimensions associated with the brane influence all the forces.
Therefore, even if gravity boasts an intrinsic strength similar to that of the other three forces, because it diffuses throughout the external space-time, also called the bulk, its apparent strength in the 3-brane universe is much reduced.
Any extra dimensions affecting gravity would alter Isaac Newton’s inverse-square law, which holds that objects attract each other with a force inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. The theorists calculated that one extra dimension in the bulk would have a scale of 100 million kilometers—about the distance from Earth to the sun. That option isn’t feasible because Earth’s orbit obeys the inverse-square law.
If there were two extra dimensions, however, each would have a scale of 0.1 to 1.0 mm—large enough to be detectable but small enough not to be ruled out by tests of the inverse-square law to date. With more extra dimensions, the length scale shrinks far below the millimeter range.
Combining both approaches, “you wind up with a very compelling picture,” says Dienes, a CERN team member, now at the University of Arizona in Tucson. “These two scenarios together lower all the fundamental high-energy scales of physics.”
Inspired by these proposals, experimenters are looking for signs of extra dimensions both at accelerators and in gravitational laboratories.
Most of the accelerator searches have begun in the past year, says Kingman Cheung of the University of California, Davis. Before that, researchers had been translating the theorists’ proposals into concrete predictions. Cheung presented a summary of ongoing and proposed searches last December at the Seventh International Symposium on Particles, Strings, and Cosmology ‘99 (PASCOS ‘99) conference at Tahoe City, Calif.
To find extra dimensions of the type studied by the CERN group, experimenters are on the alert for what they call Kaluza-Klein towers, which are associated with carriers of the nongravitational forces, such as the photon of electromagnetism and the Z boson of the weak force. Excitations of energy within the extra dimensions would turn each of these carriers into a family of increasingly massive clones of the original particle—analogous to the harmonics of a musical note.
“I like to think of these Kaluza-Klein states as echoes off the fifth dimension,” Dienes says.
Because these towers tend to magnify the strengths of the forces, their influence might even be detected at energies below those at which the towers themselves become apparent, researchers say.
Going back through the data from an earlier run of CERN’s Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP), researchers have found no evidence of such extradimensional influences at up to an energy of 4 TeV, Cheung told Science News. The CERN team’s extra dimensions must therefore be smaller than 0.5 x 10–19 m. The towers might become detectable in 6 or 7 years, when the completed LHC will be able to probe energies of up to 14 TeV, he says.
Gravity doesn’t lend itself to measurement in accelerators because the other forces overwhelm its tiny influence on particle interactions. “The graviton is so weakly interacting, it doesn’t enter the picture,” Cheung says.
Instead, physicists typically make precision measurements of gravity by using extremely delicate experiments, named after the 18th-century scientist Henry Cavendish, that determine the force between two suspended masses. At very small separations, however, electrostatic influences and molecular interactions known as van der Waals forces again swamp the gravitational effects.
By conducting Cavendish experiments with extremely sensitive equipment, at least two teams of scientists are testing for millimeter-scale extra dimensions. If those dimensions exist, gravity in the submillimeter range would increase not according to Newton’s inverse-square law but in inverse proportion to the fourth power of the separation.
Researchers at Stanford University led by Aharon Kapitulnik have developed a micromachined cantilever that reacts to the gravitational tug of an arm swinging back and forth 80 micrometers beneath it. A laser detects motion in the cantilever, which is chilled to 4 kelvins to reduce random thermal motion.
The experimenters intend to measure not only gravity but also van der Waals and other short-distance forces. However, because of the hubbub over extra dimensions right now, “we are neglecting all other experiments,” Kapitulnik says.
Similarly in Boulder, Colo., a tungsten strip resembling a diving board weighing a few grams sits in a vacuum over another strip of tungsten. As a motor rapidly wiggles the diving board up and down, scientists look for motion in the strip below. A next-generation instrument operating at 4 K will eventually replace the current room-temperature version, says John C. Price of the University of Colorado, who leads the effort.
Given the dearth of knowledge about gravity in the subcentimeter range, the group is looking for any kind of deviation from expectations, not just extradimensional effects, he says. Nonetheless, the excitement about extra dimensions helps spur the group on, Price says.
If the strength of gravity takes a sharp turn upward at around 1 TeV, as the Stanford-Trieste scenario implies, an opportunity opens for testing this theory also in accelerators. Collisions at such energies could produce gravitons in large numbers, and some of these particles would immediately vanish into the extra dimensions, carrying energy with them. Experimenters would look for an unusual pattern of so-called missing energy events.
This and more subtle effects of extra dimensions could show up at existing accelerators, such as LEP and the Tevatron at Fermilab, only if the dimensions have scales nearly as big as a millimeter. The powerful LHC will greatly improve the chances for detecting missing energy events and other prominent extradimension effects.
Despite his award-winning literary fling 2 years ago, Kane has soured on large extra dimensions. He remains a firm believer in six or seven extra dimensions, he says, but only at about 10–35 m. The theory is cleaner that way, he argues, with just the three familiar, very large spatial dimensions, and the rest reduced to the scale of strings themselves.
“If I was trying to win a contest today, I’d write on something else,” he says.
By contrast to Kane’s insistence on small extra dimensions, one pair of researchers recently came up with an argument for extra dimensions of unlimited extent, similar in size to the familiar dimensions. These scientists noted that the 3-brane, like any other object with energy or mass, would warp space-time and thereby confine gravitons to a region just slightly larger than the brane.
The warping would also localize extra dimensions’ effects on Newton’s inverse-square law of gravity to subcentimeter distances not yet explored. Such localization allows the dimensions themselves to stretch indefinitely, argue Lisa Randall of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Princeton University and Raman Sundrum of Boston University. This novel idea, described in the Dec. 6, 1999 Physical Review Letters, has many implications and may suggest new indicators of extra dimensions. The work has already sparked dozens of journal and online articles.
Whether or not large extra dimensions actually show up in the laboratory, researchers are sparing no effort to push the limits of one hidden dimension on which everyone agrees: imagination

Some theorists envision the universe as multidimensional space-time embedding a membranous entity, called a brane, also of multiple dimensions. Diagram depicts familiar 3-dimensional space (time not shown) as a vertical line. At every point along line, one extra dimension curls around with a radius (r) of no more that about 10–19 meter. Perpendicular to every point of the brane extends the bulk, another extra dimension.

Have you been asleep with someone watching you but came back to report that you appeared in two seperate places at one time. This is possible and they are about to prove it.
Visiting a particle accelerator is like a religious experience, at least for Nima Arkani-Hamed.
Immense detectors surround the areas where inconceivably small particles slam into one another at super-high energies, collisions that may confirm Arkani-Hamed’s predictions about undiscovered properties of nature.
Arkani-Hamed is only in his mid-30s, but he has distinguished himself as one of the leading thinkers in the field of particle physics.
His revolutionary ideas about the way the universe works will finally be put to the test this year at Switzerland’s Large Hadron Collider, which will be the world’s most powerful particle accelerator.
The accelerator, estimated to cost between $5 billion and $10 billion, could provide answers to questions physicists have had for decades. Thousands of scientists from around the world are collaborating on the project at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN.
If the results confirm any of Arkani-Hamed’s predictions, they would be the first extension of our notions of space-time since Albert Einstein.
“We’re essentially guaranteed that there’s going to be something surprising,” Arkani-Hamed said of the Large Hadron Collider, which will operate inside a 17-mile circular tunnel.
Regarded as a “gem,” Arkani-Hamed is “opening our minds and creating a new world of ideas that challenge deep-grained preconceptions about spacetime,” said Chris Tully, professor of physics at Princeton University, who is working on the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.
“From the point of view of the big experiments at the LHC, there is no amount of money or craftsmanship that would produce the kind of insight that comes from sharing LHC data with a true visionary like Nima Arkani-Hamed,” Tully said.
Formerly a professor at Harvard, Arkani-Hamed currently sits on the faculty at the prestigious Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, where Einstein served from 1933 until his death in 1955.
“He was lured from Harvard to the IAS; I’m sure that’s considered quite a coup,” said Daniel Marlow, a physics professor at Princeton who is also collaborating on the CMS experiment.
