Video: String Theory in Two Minutes or Less

I’ve always wondered what this String Theory business was about since some physicists believe it could be fundamental enough to become a “theory of everything”.

Discover Magazine recently ran a user-generated video contest asking for people to explain String Theory in Two Minutes or Less so here you see the winning pick of Columbia University physicist Brian Greene. Here’s his rationale for choosing “String Ducky”. It’s novel because the “ducky” video uses anecdotes to explain complex issues.

If this stirs your interest in String Theory, might I suggest watching Nova’s The Elegant Universe, a free three hour public science programme on almost everything about String Theory.
