Monday-Wednesday video: Stephen Hawking and the theory of everything

*Cosmology*

**MITC DVD 393**:
Stephen Hawking and the theory of everything.
Join Hawking and other renowned thinkers as they explore the revolutionary new ideas that have evolved since the publication of his blockbuster book. Besides interviews, this stimulating documentary uses computer graphics and simple, easy-to-understand demonstrations to explain complex concepts. Topics include black holes, string theory, super symmetry, dimensions beyond our perception, and the mysterious M force - all potential keys to unlocking the elusive "theory of everything" that seems so tantalizingly close.
