Brian Greene on 'The Fabric of the Cosmos'

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Have you ever wondered why we see time move forward, but never backward? Are you uncertain about how time and space relate to each other? Do you wonder if there are other universes out there that are similar to our own? If so, you’re not alone. Physicist and bestselling author Brian Greene has been delving into these questions his whole life.

You can learn about the answers and theories he’s uncovered in his new four-hour "NOVA" special, which begins airing tonight on PBS. The special is called "The Fabric of the Cosmos," and it’s based on Greene’s book of the same name.

I'm watching NOVA on PBS about the string theory. This is going to sound strange, but for a few years now when my eyes are closed and the timing is right I see a bright blue luminascent string or two floating around in my mind- I wondered if it was my DNA- but when I saw the vibrating illustration on NOVA today I wondered if it somehow wasn't connected. I've been curious about it for some while, I just wanted to put that out there. Thanks.

Brian Greene looks like Data from Star Trek. Coincidence?

I MISSED IT! Did anyone see it? I mean, I know the number 42 is the answer to the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. But I wanted to see the math process to get to 42.
