CHASING REALITY: EINSTEIN’S DREAM AND BEYOND
Building upon his own revolutionary breakthroughs, Albert Einstein dreamed of finding a single theory—perhaps encapsulated by a single mathematical equation—that would be able to explain all of nature’s forces. Einstein spent 30 years in valiant pursuit of the unified theory but came up empty handed. In the decades since, physicists have picked up where Einstein left off, and have made great strides, with some of their most well-developed approaches involving strange ideas like microscopic strings, extra dimensions of space and possibly even other universes.
In this dispatch from the frontier of physics, audiences go on a whirlwind journey across 300 years of thinking. Brian Greene is one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists and a brilliant, entertaining communicator of cutting-edge scientific concepts. A Professor of Physics and of Mathematics at Columbia University, Greene is the author of three acclaimed books—The Elegant Universe, The Fabric of the Cosmos and The Hidden Reality.
