EDWARD WITTEN: THE STRING THEORY

WATCH&BUY

title String Theorys

One of the most fascinating physical theories, the string theory, as told by one of its greatest interprets, Edward Witten.
The dream of science is to unify all physical phenomena into a single theory that can explain space, time and every force of the universe; the string theory, its origins and its many variations, the search for the ultimate understanding of reality.
