The Elegant Universe

I did find time to watch a little TV this weekend. There was this great program about string theory on PBS called The Elegant Universe and based off of a book of the same name. String theory is the “theory of everything” in that it brings unification to two very opposing ideas, gravity and quantum mechanics. If there was ever a program called “string theory for dummies”, this would be it and it’s absolutely engaging. You can actually watch the entire program online before you buy the DVD which I plan to do.
