I hope some of this leads to improvement of the various models going around. If as stated the big bang left echoes it will increase chances of finding improved energy sources.

Donut Earth?
Very good writeup on stable alternative shapes of planets.

"According to the laws of physics, a planet the shape of a donut, or toroid, could actually exist — but it's extremely unlikely to ever form naturally. But what if an advanced alien civilization decided to build one? What properties would a toroid-Earth exhibit? And what would life be like?"
