Join Dr. Brian Greene for a whirlwind exploration of one science story -- the quest to unravel some of the biggest mysteries of space and time -- and come away with a visceral understanding of why science matters.

Greene distills impossibly complex theoretical physics, like the concept of the multiverse, into a form we can all understand, and is dedicated to sharing science stories with broad audiences to combat perceptions of science as cold, distant, or irrelevant. Greene argues that understanding the transformative power of science – just like great music, art, or literature -- should be considered an indispensable part of what makes life worth living.

String theorist and author of The Elegant Universe, Brian Greene is one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists and a brilliant, entertaining communicator of cutting-edge scientific concepts. The Washington Post described him as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today.”

In addition to writing best-selling books, Greene shares science stories through a range of interdisciplinary media.  He co-founded the World Science Festival, an annual celebration of science from cutting-edge research to works in theatre, film, and the arts inspired by scientific ideas. A graduate of Harvard and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, Greene is a professor in both Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University.
