Einstein’s Biggest Blunder

The theory of Relativity might be more usefully called the theory of the constancy of the speed of light. So what if the speed of light wasn’t constant?

There is a general ground swell in physics towards exploring meta-laws which might govern the laws of physics themselves. These therefore might exist in different forms in different universes or at different times, within one universe. The heretical idea that the speed of light might vary, is part of this trend and has some serious proponents, who are interviewed in this Equinox special.

    A friend of mine, a man often given to poetic flights of fancy, told me once that he considered the Big Bang to be just one of many, and that each Big Bang was but the heartbeat of God. This view somehow fits the physics propounded here and hence I thought it apt to comment. Thanks for the great films-keep up the good work!

    Fantastic show. I have trouble undestanding some of the stuff they talk about, had to rewind a few times to comprehend better.

    I must say though that this show was great, I love these kinds of shows. I would love if they kept coming to my rss reader :)
