Gravity 3.0: On the Shoulders of Giants

Dr. Amanda Peet (University of Toronto) explains how string theorists are working to build upon the foundations of Newtonian and Einsteinian physics to explain extreme conditions where those earlier theories break down, such as in a black hole singularity. Dr. Peet delivers a LIVE public lecture on the subject at Perimeter Institute May 6, 2015. How to watch: https://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/outreach/general-public/public-lecture-series
