Adapted from a provocative book by Brian Greene, this deeply engrossing documentary - which originally aired on PBS’s NOVA in three parts - attempts to explain the controversial string theory, a complicated scientific proposal that, in short, posits a single explanation for many of the universe’s mysteries.
As affable an egghead as you’re likely to find, Greene engages an array of physicists in his examination of string theory, which in part blends Einstein’s theory of relativity with the complex laws governing quantum mechanics.
Although mind-numbing technical terms
are kept to a minimum, those of us not conversant with advanced
physics might feel a bit lost at times.
