Episode Description:

In this episode we talk about string theory, a theory about the most basic units of matter and energy that could potentially change our understanding of the entire physical universe. In string theory, all matter is composed of tiny vibrating strings that exist in ten dimensions at once, and it appears to explain certain forces, such as gravity, better than more conventional theories. The guest is Leonard Susskind, the Felix Bloch Professor of Physics at Stanford University and Director of the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics. Professor Susskind is considered one of the fathers of string theory, he was the first to introduce the idea of the string theory landscape, and he was the author of the 2005 book “The Cosmic Landscape” which was one of the first attempts to bring string theory to a general audience. He is also an expert on Black Holes, and we discuss those as well. Martin Wasserman hosts.
