Bagel or soccer ball

The New York Times has an article on a new theory that the universe is shaped like a dodecahedron. It challenges other theories of the shape of the universe, including one that argues that it could be shaped like a torus (a really big bagel). What jumped out at me was the statement by one scientist, “What’s nice is it’s so testable. It’s the truth or it’s dead. The data is even out there, on the Internet. It’s just a question of sifting through it.”
