Could a Eureka Machine solve String Theory for us?
Ya' know how Michio Kaku is trying to come up with a Master Equation for String Theory, one inch long that could explain everything? Also, a scientist at a university has developed a computer called Eureka that comes up with equations by eliminating the ones that don't work and allowing the ones that do work to survive. Perhaps, a newer and slightly modified version of Eureka could be clever enough to come up with a Master Equation in a fraction of the time it would take Professor Kaku to do it. I'll bet that maybe part of it has the number 42 in it, like in Douglas Adam's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
