Renowned physicist and author Brian Greene will be on hand to screen his final episode of NOVA’s innovative series The Fabric of the Cosmos, “Universe or Multiverse?” In this episode, host Greene speculates that our universe many be just one of the worlds that make up a multiverse. Such a theory, at the frontier of physics, would shatter all notions of space, time, and our place in the cosmos. After the screening, Greene will answer questions about this radical conception of reality and how the universe is much stranger than originally conceived. Greene and series executive Paula Apsell will also discuss how this series was adapted from Greene’s book, detailing how animation was creatively used to approximate scientific theories.
