In this module, we’ve learned about how ideas from condensed matter physics were able to inform particle physics. Do you see so-called “cross-fertilization” as being something that has to happen again and again in science to deepen our understandings of the natural world? Why?
Yes, I regard this as most fundamental to gain a deeper inside, e.g. the discovery that the spin direction of electrons can provoke longitudinal molecules whereas the other direction result in clumsy molecules (life, dead matter) was only possible with an interdisciplinary team.
