I'm one of the many on PBS's advisory pannel, and I would just like to mention the next program hosted by Brian Greene. It will be like his previous's segment, it will be from his book. It will be about the Fabric of the Universe.

It will deal with the structure of the universe and such and once again why things happen as they do. I don't have much info on this, and i forgot half of the info that i was given.

But hold your horses, this will appear on the next Season of PBS.

This is not really important but i thought since the previous one was such a big hit, maybe we could talk about it here :D

Moved to "Small Media at Large" (which isn't just for science fiction, despite most of its content) from BABBling.

Who's Brian Greene?

Well he is a brilliant scientist who is one of the many to study stirng theory and quantum mechanics.

Take a look at an interview on David Letterman he had, it talks a little about what he does, and on a second note, this interview is one of the main reasons of my interests in space, astronomy, and such: http://homepage.mac.com/onegoodmove/movies/briangreene.html

And after watching that, if you are dedicated enough you can go to the below link and watch a brilliant and fantastic 3-hour segment that was on NOVA. This program gave me a basic understanding of the universe, and a more in-depth look on how things are, as they are. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/program.html

I would like to suggest to all to view any, or all of the segments that NOVA puts online, it is worth your time.

Greene's book: "The Elegant universe" was really fantastic. It really managed to explain tough concepts in understandable ways. I've read alot of general science books, but felt this one really made Einstein's theory of relatively hit home and described in ways that you can then on relate it to others.

Thanks for that. That was a pretty well done interview. Well, for a David Letterman show :)

I just finished watching that the other day. I've seen it about a dozen times. The only thing I hate is there seems to be a bit of redundance, but I quess you have to at least give a quick explanation of things because of its length.

I've seen them all. Someone on this board had mentioned the above link to the NOVA page previously. Don't know who, but a belated thanks is in order.

My favorite is the "Petunia" (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3210/02.html) episode. Gotta love genetics.
