← Galaxy map hints at fractal universe

"...if the Galaxy distribution turned out to be fractal... Davis would owe Sylos Labini and Pietronero a case of California Wine.

Should the fractal pattern begin to disintegrate..., Davis would receive a case of Italian wine- which some would say is a better deal."

I would have loved to be in the room when this bet was made. Speculating upon the structure of inconceivably massive regions of space in terms of a case of nice wine.

That's a better reason than non-stick pans, I suppose...
