The Next Revolution
Lecture no. 24 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity
Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Survey the greatest unsolved problem in theoretical physics: the search for a quantum theory of gravity. Examine string theory, loop quantum gravity, and also entropic gravity, which suggests a revolutionary link with thermodynamics. Close the course with a deepened appreciation for the connection between everyday features of gravity and the most exciting questions in contemporary physics and cosmology.
