The Elegant Universe

I was intrigued by this concept of “string theory” (the latest, greatest in physic’s explanation of everything) even if the science is often too over my head. My problem is that string theory isn’t particularly grounded in science (experiments providing evidence) as belief (it makes sense to be correct). This has the unfortunate consequence of likening it to another so-called theory of everything, i.e. religion. The series did its best to be lowbrow enough to get its points across to as many people as possible and still express the wonder that is a universe made up of eleven dimensions.
