    In a rare blend of scientific insight and writing as elegant as the theories it explains, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe that consists of 11 dimensions where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter-from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas-is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy.

    There was a time when “universe” meant all there is. Everything. Yet, in recent years discoveries in physics and cosmology have led a number of scientists to conclude that our universe may be one among many. With crystal-clear prose and inspired use of analogy, Brian Greene shows how a range of different “multiverse” proposals emerges from theories developed to explain the most refined observations of both subatomic particles and the dark depths of space.

    In June of 1916, Albert Einstein published his ambitious paper proposing the existence of gravitational waves. In 2016, Einstein's 100-year-old theory was proven correct when scientists detected ripples in the fabric of space. Einstein and Relativity: A Conversation by Paul Rudd and Brian Greene celebrates this achievement, with Greene and Rudd sitting down to talk about string theory, relativity, and the discovery of gravitational waves.
