Season 03


Here is a very brief outline of the development of string theory, the details of which will eventually fill many large volumes written by many people directly and indirectly involved in this rich and fascinating story. 385 more words


Particles Aren't Vibrations (at Least, Not the Ones You Think)

You’ve probably heard this story before, likely from Brian Greene.

In string theory, the fundamental particles of nature are actually short lengths of string. These strings can vibrate, and like a string on a violin, that vibration is arranged into… 680 more words

The Mysteries of Supersymmetry

In physics, the standard model has been used to describe how the basic building blocks of matter interact with one another, connected to one another through a system of four forces; the strong force, weak force, electromagnetic force, and gravitational force. 772 more words
