But Hogan's model suggests that theorists should seriously consider a quantum theory of gravity in which two very different regions of spacetime, despite their vast separation, can still profoundly influence each other, Schutz notes.

00 Hardcover QB981 Over the past quarter century, new observations and phenomenological models have propelled cosmology forward; at the same time, once-shy string theory has been filling out as a possible candidate for a quantum theory of gravity.
He has a grant from the Foundational Questions Institute to study new approaches to the quantum theory of gravity, his primary research area as both a mathematician and a physicist.
String theory is simply the only hope we currently have for a quantum theory of gravity, and obviously gravity has to be quantized to be consistent with the rest of what we know about physics.
Hawking side-steps the issue: if space-time is a self-contained continuum without boundaries, as the quantum theory of gravity implies, it is meaningless to talk about what happened at or before its origin (which would be a boundary).
This could be a key to understanding the forces of nature, including the quantum theory of gravity.
In a quantum theory of gravity, it should be possible to derive the Bekenstein-Hawking formula linking a black hole's entropy, temperature, and area from more fundamental ideas.
