    Som news outlets are reporting a potential solution to the cosmological constant problem:

    Here is a report from the university

    It is interesting that their calculation (based on the observed cosmological constant) gives a cutoff-scale that is not too far away from the Planck scale. They just used two scalar fields, a more realistic field content would be interesting.
