Brian Greene hosts new mind-bending ‘Nova’ series
Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2011
Beginning tonight, acclaimed physicist and host Brian Greene lets Nova viewers in on a secret: We’ve all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe — that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists — just might be wrong.
In “The Fabric of the Cosmos,” a new four-part Nova special series, Greene takes viewers on a mind-bending reality check and journey to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time and the universe.
With each step, you’ll discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize — a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected.
“The Fabric of the Cosmos” airs on KET each Wednesday night beginning at 9/8 pm CT and Sundays beginning at 6/5 pm CT on KET2.
Individual programs are “What is Space?,” November 2 & 6; “The Illusion of Time,” November 9 & 13; “Quantum Leap,” November 16 & 20; and “Universe or Multiverse?” November 23 & 27.
