In clear, nontechnical language, string theorist Brian Greene explains how our understanding of the universe has evolved from Einstein's notions of gravity and space-time to superstring theory, where minuscule strands of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions create every particle and force in the universe. (This mind-bending theory has been testing at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva).
“The past, present and future are equally real… Just as we think of all of space as being ‘out there’, we must also think of all of time as being ‘out there’... Everything that has ever happened or will happen… it all exists.” Brian Greene in 'The Elegant Universe'
"The Elegant Universe" is an Emmy Award winning three hour program in three parts for television broadcast in late 2003 on the PBS series NOVA: Einstein's Dream Strings The Thing Welcome To The Dimension Full 3 Hour Presentation
Quantum Mechanics: Fabric of the Cosmos - Documentary. This series, hosted by Brian Greene brings even the most complicated scientific principles within reach. They are fun to watch, and the illustrations/analogies lend to real learning and understanding!
