It’s significant in many ways but probably boring to most people. One of them is the hypothetical potential for extra dimensions in space-time. Another is gravitons, which are elementary particals that are responsible for this enigma we call gravity. The implications are enormous, but you’ll have to use your imagination from here on out. Discovering what is responsible for gravity will allow us to replicate it. If we can “control” gravity, we can do many, many things, one of which is to perhaps make nuclear fusion more efficient and less tedious to reproduce.
Ending the worlds energy “crisis”..
Knowing the fundemental make up of the universe will allow us to one day manipulate it, much like we do with everything we have come to master.
