Strange Views of Space and Time: Einstein to String Theory
Gary Horowitz professor, physics, Boston University
In honor of the 100th anniversary of Einstein's "miraculous year", Gary Horowitz describes the modern view of space and time. He starts with special relativity, then describes how space and time are modified in Einstein's general theory of relativity, and ends with recent ideas coming out of string theory. In all cases, the view of space and time arising from modern physics is radically different from our everyday experience, yet many of their strange properties have already been confirmed by experiment.
