oh, I'm doing a research paper on superstring theory, and I have used the document as a source, can anyone tell me when did the program first air?

Am I right in thinking that Greene and Randall dated in high school?
... probably not. ^_^

How small is the "string" compared to an atom?

It's not absolutely pinned down, but one relationship I've seen offered is Planck Length : string length :::: string length : proton diameter.

If a string was the size of a proton, then the proton would be the size of the Earth. And the Earth would be the size of the entire observable Universe.

Check the PBS website.



I just saw this miniseries and I have to say that it was quite interesting. String theory is indeed seductive. LOL

The series was recently rerun on PBS.

Greene stated that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line [paraphrased] - which is technically correct only in the plane.

A geodesic is shortest distance between two points in curved space with the straight line the geodesic of the plane.

I read the book, The Elegant universe, and liked it. Although string theory seems a little stechy when it comes to sub-planck lengths, it overall does seem like an unproved version of the T.O.E.

It is really great stuff. I should add this to the Romanian portal of popularization of particle physics I created for Clubul Fizica particulelor-portal de popularizare a fizicii particulelor: http://fizicaparticulelor.ro
