ON EXPLORATIONS: Prof. Brian Greene of Columbia and Lisa Randall of Harvard discuss string theory, the theory of everything.

In this episode, Dr. Michio Kaku tells us the Hadron Collider is up and running.  It is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle collider.  With it, we can learn to test string theory.

Michio Kaku talks to two guests, Brian Greene of Columbia, author of The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory and other books.   Brian Greene is one of the world’s leading string theorists, and he explains the most sophisticated concepts ever contemplated accessible and entirely entertaining.  He brings us closer to understanding how the universe works.

Lisa Randall of Harvard is the second guest.  She is author of Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe’s Hidden Dimensions.  Lisa Randall’s brilliant work is a journey that tracks the arc of discovery from early twentieth-century physics to the extreme edge of modern scientific theory. An internationally renowned theoretical physicists, Lisa Randall’s talk gives us amazing scientific possibilities that have been only found in the realm of science fiction.

What is world made of?  How many dimensions do we have?  How many universes are there?
