Abstract:

Revolted by quantum theory, Einstein spent his final decades trying to create and all-emcompassing mathematical model of the universe in which God indeed does not play dice. In this program, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku and experts from Cambridge, MIT, and elsewhere discuss Einstein's revolutionary time/space theories of 1905, the ascendancy of quantum mechanics and string theory, and Einstein's unswerving belief that the laws of nature--elegant and precise--must reveal a universe of divine predictability down to the last subatomic particle. A gripping dramatization fo Einstein's last two days paints a vivid portrait of an idealistic scientist who never gave up seeking.
