Fabric of the Cosmos: Space,
Time & the Texture of Reality
Our understanding of space and time has undergone
a series of upheavals during the last 300 years.
In this talk, Prof. Greene will describe some of these,
from Newton's absolute conception of space and time,
to Einstein's relativistic version, through quantum
theory's uncertainty and entanglement, to cutting-edge
work in string theory suggesting more dimensions of
space than those we can see. No expertise in
physics will be presumed.
