Brian Greene and other "string theorists" are exploring a possible scenario in which people, and the entire world in which we live, are actually a 3-D holographic projection of two-dimensional data that exists outside the accessible universe. The concept is hard to comprehend for some because of the complex math behind the theory. However, Greene says his goal is to build public excitement about science. "The idea is to...find the compelling narrative and stories that allow these programs...

One of the most significant moments in the history of science may come after a new particle collider starts work this year beneath the Swiss-French border, according to a renowned physicist, Brian Greene. The Large Hadron Collider just might prove that the controversial "theory of everything," string theory, is true. Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, New York City, and author of best-selling books on string theory, spoke Tuesday at Brigham Young...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
