BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two LSU researchers have won a $250,000 grant to probe the origins of the universe.
Parampreet Singh, an assistant professor in the LSU Department of Physics & Astronomy, and Peter Diener, assistant research professor in the LSU Center for Computation & Technology and in Singh's department, submitted a proposal hoping to answer questions about the earliest state of the university and won the grant funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
The foundation awarded more than $4 million in research grants to 20 scientists worldwide.
Singh and Diener focused their proposal on the fundamental question regarding the origin of the universe, which has so far eluded scientists.
