    The Unification of Physics: The Quest for a Theory of Everything

    This event is sold out
    Featuring: Katherine Freese (Nordita and University of Michigan), Marcelo Gleiser (Dartmouth College), Max Tegmark (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
    Moderator: Steve Paulson (Wisconsin Public Radio)

    A "theory of everything" has thus far eluded physicists seeking to unify the laws of the universe. Physicists Katherine Freese, Marcelo Gleiser, and Max Tegmark debate whether there are scientific and human limits on what can be ultimately known.
