Major breakthroughs in theoretical physics are often marked by unifications in our understanding, either of the forces of nature or of our conceptual frameworks – our paradigms. Historically, each of these unifications has led to profound benefits for humanity, as we absorb its ramifications and discover creative ways to apply our new-found understanding. Explore the six most powerful ideas in physics history through this multimedia experience. | watch |
