Dr. Brian Greene

Dr. Brian Greene is the author of the new book "The Fabric Of The Cosmos" and one of the world’s leading physicists. He has been working on the unified theories and quantum gravity for more than a decade. In 1990, he and a colleague discovered mirror symmetry, launching a vibrant new field in physics and mathematics. Later, he and his colleague discovered topology change, showing that the fabric of space can tear, refuting Einstein’s theory that space can stretch, but not tear. His discoveries have been published in the leading science peer review journals as well as other science and popular press. Professor Greene has lecture in more than twenty-five countries and is widely regarded for a number of groundbreaking discoveries in superstring theory. Dr. Greene is the author of the bestselling book, “The Elegant Universe,” a book which became a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the subject of the recent three-part Nova PBS series hosted by Dr. Greene. Brian Greene received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and his doctorate from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He joined the physics faculty of Cornell University in 1990, was appointed to a full professorship in 1995, and in 1996 joined Columbia University where he is professor of physics and mathematics as well as co-director of the Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle Physics

Broadcast 222 (Special Edition)

Dr. Brian Greene, the author of the new book, "The Fabric Of The Cosmos," was the guest on The Space Show today. Dr. Greene talked with Space Show listeners about developments and advances in theoretical physics. Dr. Greene was asked to apply the knowledge of theoretical physics to practical applications in becoming space-faring and developing our space resources. His response to this line of questioning was most honest and interesting. In addition, listeners e-mailed questions to Dr. Greene about the possible spiritual component of research in the field of physics. In addition, Dr.
