The Fabric of the Cosmos

Brian Greene is one of my favorite humans on this planet; a theoretical physicist, mathematician, & string theorist, he has been a professor of physics & mathematics at Columbia University since 1996. He is also the chairman of the World Science Festival since co-founding it in 2008. Allow your mind to be blown by my favorite series:

The Fabric of the Cosmos.’

 “Interweaving provocative theories, experiments, & stories with crystal-clear explanations & imaginative metaphors like those that defined the groundbreaking & highly acclaimed series The Elegant Universe, ‘The Fabric of the Cosmos’ aims to be the most compelling, visual, & comprehensive picture of modern physics ever seen on television.”

Here is part 1 (parts 2,3, & 4 will follow) Enjoy!
