A terrific discussion by two guys in-the-know of one of the more promising overarching ideas for a workable “theory of everything.”
Can we really hope to summarize the underlying nature of the universe, even a multiverse, with an equation only about an inch long?
Hosted and moderated by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, this talk discusses the merits of an ultimate theory underlying all of physics, the so-called Theory of Everything. It has on it’s panel; Dr. Katherine Freese, professor of physics at the University of Michigan; Dr. Jim Gates, professor of physics at the University of Maryland-College Park; Dr. Janna Levin, professor of physics and astronomy at Barnard College; Dr. Marcello Gleiser, professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College; Dr. Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University; Dr. Lee Smolin, theoretical physicist at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. This debate was recorded at the American Museum of Natural History on March 7, 2011.
The insightful maturity of Sagan and the schoolyard sneering of Craig – guess who would win?
