The Elegant Universe
July 31, 2004
If you haven’t caught it already, you can now watch Nova’s excellent three hour mini-series, The Elegant Universe as streaming video from the pbs.org site. (formats – Quicktime, Realplayer)
By an odd coincidence, I had just mentioned this to my father last night on the phone. He had just read this month’s Discovery magazine feature on Albert Einstein, and I told him that if he liked that, he should watch for a re-run of this series on PBS; it’s a great layman’s introduction to the current state of thinking in cosmology and cosmology-related theoretical physics.
Unfortunately, if he could actually be coaxed into turning the computer on to watch it online, it would be sometime around next St. Swithun’s Day before the stream started on a dial-up connection…
