If You Only Had the Courage Dr. Kaku

cowardly lionFrom a great read on String theory you can read here:

Cosmic strings are fundamental strings that have been blown up to cosmic scales during inflation. Being
very massive, they would reveal their presence via gravitational lensing and leave a spectacular signature.
“D-strings joining with fundamental strings at junctions could lead to a network of strings in the sky, which
would be incontrovertible evidence for string theory”, says Green. Such massive strings would also be a source
of gravitational waves, so it is possible that gravitational- wave detectors such as LIGO in the US could
pick them up. “It’s a long shot, but we should know the answer within 5–10 years,” says Polchinski.

HOW ABOUT HERE, HOW ABOUT NOW?  And we can start saving lives immediately.
