The Elegant Universe: Part 3 PBS Airdate: November 4, 2003 NARRATOR: Now, on NOVA, take a thrill ride into a world stranger than science fiction, where you play the game by breaking some rules, where a new view of the universe pushes you beyond the limits of your wildest imagination. This is the world of "string theory," a way of describing every force and all matter from an atom to earth, to the end of the galaxies—from the birth of time to its final tick, in a single theory, a "Theory of Everything." Our guide to this brave new world is Brian Greene, the bestselling author and physicist.
Leonard Susskind (born 1940) [ 2 ] is the Felix Bloch Professor of Theoretical Physics at Stanford University , and Director of the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics . His research interests include string theory , quantum field theory , quantum statistical mechanics and quantum cosmology . [ 1 ] He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences , [ 3 ] and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences , [ 4 ] an associate member of the faculty of Canada's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics , [ 5 ] and a distinguished professor of the Korea Institute for Advanced Study . [ 6 ] Susskind is widely regarded as one of the fathers of string theory , [ 7 ] having, with Yoichiro Nambu and Holger Bech Nielsen , independently introduced the idea that particles could in fact be states of excitation of a relativistic string. [ 8 ] He was the first to introduce the idea of the string theory landscape in 2003. [ 9 ] Susskind was awarded the 1998 J. J. Sakurai Prize . [ 10 ]
