Well this upcoming year will be my last year of high school (yes I'm think WAY ahead). Anyways, I was thinking about grad school, and I've been looking into LQG (loop quantum gravity) and am thinking, that I will probably want to do research in something in that field. However, I've read that the outlook on LQG is not very good, and that it could be "dis-proven" (not sure if that's the right word for this case) in 10 years, if not sooner! So my question is, will LQG be around for longer than 10 years? If it looks like LQG will be out of the picture within 10 years, can you guys suggest similar fields (outside string theory) that have good outlooks for the future? Thanks for any help!
