So, what about String Theory?

During class today, we discussed falsifiability as the criterion for hypotheses and theories to be considered scientific. Does that mean String Theory isn’t a scientific theory? Well, yes and no… it depends on whether falsifiability is the only way to deem a theory scientific or not. Quanta Magazine has a great article on another way to think about scientific theories.
