Jim Al Khalili: The World According to Physics
Theoretical physicist Jim Al-Khalili offers a fascinating overview at what physics reveals about the modern world. Al-Khalili believes the knowledge discovered by physics both empowers and humbles us, and still, it continues to delve valiantly into the unknown.
He will introduce the fundamental concepts of space, time, energy and matter along with the three pillars of modern physics—quantum theory, relativity and thermodynamics—explaining how all three must come together if we are ever to fully understand reality.
Al-Khalili is the well-known BBC host of the long-running weekly radio program “The Life Scientific.”
