High-impact fundamental research

In my perspective, high-impact fundamental research should be related to the following “extreme” topics:

Extremely fast (speed of light)
Extremely small (elementary particles)
Extremely big (universe)
Extremely heavy (black hole)
Extremely high energy (extremely hot)
Extremely low energy (extremely cold)
Extremely complex (life)

The above research topics have been inspired by a presentation by Prof. Gerard ‘t Hooft, recipient of the 1999 Nobel Prize in physics for work in electroweak interactions.
