Uniting the Laws of the Large and Those of the Small


Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity holds that what we perceive as the force of gravity arises from the curvature of space and time. This theory, proposed in the early 20th century, illuminated the grand expanse of the cosmos.

But Einstein was also instrumental in developing quantum mechanics for describing the microworld. While these advances were considered unrelated in Einstein’s time, recent insights suggest that they may actually be connected.  

In this video from the World Science Festival’s Big Ideas series, physicists Leonard Susskind, Ana Alonso-Serrano, and Mark Van Raamsdonk join Brian Greene to examine this newfound link and explore its implications for uniting the laws of the large and those of the small.
