â€œOur world is rich,â€ Lisa Randall has written, â€œso rich that two of the most important questions particle physicists ask are: Why this richness? How is all the matter that I see related?â€ As one of the most influential theoretical physicists working today, she's increasingly interested in the interconnectedness between fields that have previously operated more autonomously: astronomy, biology, and paleontology. Sheâ€™s pursuing a theory that â€œdark matterâ€ might have created the cosmic event that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs â€” and hence humanityâ€™s rise as a species. We explore what sheâ€™s discovering, as well as the human questions and takeaways her work throws into relief.
