Summary
Beginning with simple and clear explanations of major concepts of physics, including gravity, electromagnetism, and relativity, this DVD illuminates one of the most revolutionary theories in physics today. The string theory, or superstring theory, proposes that the fundamental ingredients of nature are inconceivably tiny strands of energy, whose different modes of vibration underlie everything that happens in the Universe
