The Fabric of the Cosmos with Brian Greene
Item #: DVD-FABRIC
The Fabric of the Cosmos with Brian Greene A visually compelling and entertaining presentation of modern physics, this program features clear explanations and imaginative metaphors! The Fabric of the Cosmos, based on the book by physicist and author Brian Greene, takes us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize, a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected. The Illusion of Time - We waste it, spend it, make it, and kill it, but what really is time? Is it like a river that flows, a clock that ticks, or nothing more than an illusion? Join a time-traveling adventure to uncover the true nature of past, present, and future--and of time itself.
The Four Programs:
The Illusion of Time: We waste it, spend it, make it, and kill it, but what really is time? Is it like a river that flows, a clock that ticks, or nothing more than an illusion? Join a time-traveling adventure to uncover the true nature of past, present, and future--and of time itself.
What Is Space: You can't see it, touch it, or taste it, but space is everywhere. And it's not just an empty void. Surprising clues that space is "something" rather than "nothing" are overturning much of what we thought we knew about the universe, and may even hold the key to its ultimate fate.
Quantum Leap: Take a wild ride into a bizarre realm where it seems the impossible is possible. Objects pop in and out of existence; things can, in a sense, be in two places at once; even teleportation is real. Welcome to the weird world of quantum mechanics. On the scale of atoms and particles, the universe is nothing like it seems.
Universe or Multiverse:Is our universe unique, or could it be just one of many in an endless "multiverse" where copies of you, me, and everyone else may exist? This radical idea is getting some serious scientific attention, and could revolutionize our picture of the cosmos--and our place within it.
