Brian Greene comes on Charlie Rose to talk about string- theory, and the television program 'Nova' for which he is doing a three- part- series. Greene explains the fact that 'string- theory' is now the only candidate for putting together quantum theory and special relativity, and providing a 'theory of everything'. He explains what 'strings' are in a way the laymen can sort of understand. Within the atomic nucleus are the electrons protons and neutrons, then within them are the quarks and other sub- atomic particles, but within the within there is one more layer, a conjectured one - vibrating bands of energy. These are the strings which are conjectured to constitute the fundamental elements of the universe. Greene explains how 'string theory' has been used to explain 'black holes' and how it also explains 'wormholes'. He mentions Ed Witten of Princeton as the premier string- theorist. He too mentions the great objection to string- theory the lack of experimental evidence to confirm it. This interview was given in 2003 and most physicists as I write this are early waiting for the LHC Large Hadron Collider to begin working in summer 2008. The hope is that it will provide a whole new world of evidence which among other things will confirm whether or not 'string- theory' is just theoretical mumbo- jumbo or a basis for true explanation of the physical universe.
