Science & The City: What Time Is It?

Famed screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and theoretical physicist Brian Greene dissect time as we know it. What is the smallest unit of time, and what does it look like? For starters, you should stop looking at the clock, and start looking at the universe.

  1. Brian Greene | The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos

    Co-presented by The Philadelphia Science Festival Introduced by Dennis Wint, president and chief executive officer of The Franklin Institute Recognized for his groundbreaking discoveries in superstring theory, Brian Greene hosted the Public Broadcasting Service’s NOVA series based on his book, The Elegant Universe. A professor of mathematics and physics at Columbia University, he is also the author of The Fabric of the Cosmos and Icarus at the Edge of Time. He is well-known for making complex scientific principles accessible to general audiences. According to a reviewer for Publishers Weekly, the strength of his books lies ”in Greene’s unparalleled ability to translate higher mathematics and its findings into everyday language and images, through adept use of metaphor and analogy, and crisp, witty prose." In The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos, Greene shows how a range of different multiverse proposals emerges from theories developed to explain observations of both subatomic particles and the dark depths of space, featuring doppelgängers, strings, branes, quantum probabilities, holographs, and simulated worlds. Brian Greene will be interviewed by Dr. Steve Snyder, vice president of programs and exhibitions at The Franklin Institute. (recorded 4/28/2011)

  2. Theoretical Physicist Brian Greene Thinks You Might Be a Hologram

    Characters on Star Trek suffer frequent misadventures on the holodeck, a room that creates advanced holograms indistinguishable from reality. But now theoretical physicists such as Brian Greene, host of the recent PBS special The Fabric of the Cosmos, are starting to wonder if every object in the universe isn’t some sort of hologram. Greene talks physics and science fiction in this week’s episode of the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast.

    Brian Greene: The Fabric of the Universe — Host: Chris Mooney It’s the beginning of a new year here at Point of Inquiry, and we’ve got a pretty good guest to kick it off. He needs no introduction. He’s Brian Greene—celebrity physicist, bestselling author, television star and all around science communication maestro. Officially: Greene is co-founder and director of Columbia University’s Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle Physics, author of the bestselling books The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos, and co-founder of the World Science Festival. We caught up with Greene to discuss the recently aired four part NOVA special based on The Fabric of the Cosmos, as well as, well, sciency things in general.
