TITLE: Physics [videorecording] the elegant universe and beyond
PUBLISHED: WGBH Boston Video ; c2003.
DESCRIPTION: 3 videodisc (412 min.)
NOTES: I. The elegant Universe: Einstein dream -- String's the thing -- Welcome to the 11th dimension; II. Einstein big idea -- III. Einstein revealed.
NOTES: Explore the ground-breaking new string theory that will excite scientists and non-scientist alike. If string theory proves correct, the universe we see obscures a reality that is far richer and more complex than anyone ever imagined -- a universe with numerous hidden dimensions, a universe in which the fabric of space can rip and tear, a universe that may be but one of many parallel universes. Beginning with simple and clear explanations of major concepts of physics, including gravity, electromagnetism, and relativity, The Elegant Universe illuminates how string theory proposes that the fundamental ingredients of nature are inconceivably tiny strands of energy, whose different modes of vibration underlie everything that happens in the universe. If proven correct, this "Theory of Everything" would unite the laws of the large - general relativity - and the laws of the small - quantum mechanics - breaking a conceptual logjam that has frustrated scientists for nearly a century. -- II. With brilliant period recreations, discover how an obscure patent clerk, Albert Einstein, came up with his shattering 1905 discovery that the realms of matter a
NOTES: nd energy are inescapably linked. --III. Journey into the mind of a genius in this penetrating profile of the world's most renowned physicist, who contributed more than any other to our modern vision
