Time Since Einstein

Full Program: 2009 World Science Festival | 01:36:21

Featuring Physicist, Philosopher David Z. Albert, Theoretical Physicist Fotini Markopoulou-Kalamara, Cosmologist George Ellis, Cosmologist & Catholic Priest Michael Heller, and Mathematical Physicist Sir Roger Penrose with Journalist John Hockenberry Moderating

Albert Einstein shattered previous ideas about time, but left many pivotal questions unanswered: Does time have a beginning? An end? Why does it move in only one direction? Is it real, or something our minds impose on reality? Journalist John Hockenberry leads a distinguished panel, including renowned physicist Sir Roger Penrose and prominent philosopher David Albert, as they explore the nature of time. This program is part of The Big Idea Series.
