In clear, nontechnical language, string theorist Brian Greene explains how our understanding of the universe has evolved from Einstein’s notions of gravity and space-time to superstring theory, where minuscule strands of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions create every particle and force in the universe. (This mind-bending theory may soon be put to the test at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.) VIDEO->
Great article. Superstring theory certainly helps explain some of the many questions which still remain unanswered regarding ‘our’ Universe.
With any luck the Hadron Collider (LHC) should enlighten us a lot more.
Peace and light
We are indeed living in very exciting times, many long standing questions about the Universe in which we live will all become apparent with the advent of the Hadron Collider, the God Particle will certainly go some way to explaing superstring theory.
Not to mention the potential for creating black holes right here on Earth.
Bring it on
PS I love the avatars hight3ch.
Nanu nanu lol
i like the avatars too SolReka! 🙂
Yeah, I remember when we had some of them cans of that there ‘superstring’ stuff. We’d spray it around the house at each other and grandma was afraid it would stain the curtains….. Wait, what? that ain’t the same thing?
I think it might just be that… 😛
