The theory of everything

Hello guys!In this blog I am going to tell you about the theory of everything.So you would think what is the theory of everything?The theory of everything is the theory which would unite all the laws of physics into a single description.There are 4 forces in nature-Gravity,Electromagnetism,Strong and weak nuclear force.In the 1968, electromagnetism and weak nuclear force got known that they were manifestations of the same force and they were started to be called electroweak force.Now the gravity,strong nuclear force and the electroweak force seem very dissimilar.Stong force is still understandable and can be explained by quantum theory but gravity seems to be very different from the other three forces(which are nicely described by quantum theory).The theory of everything would unite all these forces.And one such theory which is the only theory that lives up to these expectations till now is the theory of superstrings.In this theory all these forces can be cosidered as the manifestations by the exchange of tiny vibrating strings.This theory is not yet proved but it will be tested with The large hadron collider in Switzerland. 26 more words
