The fabric of the cosmos by B Greene( Visual )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed physicist Brian Greene reveals a mind-boggling reality beneath the surface of our everyday world ... [taking] us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time, and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we'd hardly recognize -- a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected. Brian Greene is going to let you in on a secret: We've all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe -- that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists -- just might be wrong. Interweaving provocative theories, experiments, and stories with crystal-clear explanations and imaginative metaphors like those that defined the groundbreaking and highly acclaimed series "The Elegant Universe," "The Fabric of the Cosmos" aims to be the most compelling, visual, and comprehensive picture of modern physics ever seen on television."--Website
