The Elegant Universe [String Theory] for free!
Brian Greene is a professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University. He is the author of the bestselling books on string theory, The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos.
Based on Brian Greene’s book of the same title, the string theory program that first came out in DVD is now being offered by PBS/Nova as free streaming video.
There is a large cast of scientists, mathematicians and others on both sides of String Theory. It is continually brought into question as untested, untestable, and possibly dead wrong. The closest to proselytizing that anyone does is to explain that Quantum Physics, the set of mathematical ideas that give extremely good approximations of what happens to sub-atomic particles, has never made an incorrect prediction. Not so with String Theory; no one is willing to say, on-camera, that String Theory is the truth, and in so doing, the piece retains a certain respectful distance from the subject.”
