WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW ABOUT THEORETICAL PHYSICS?   

This course is an introductory, non-mathematical overview of those areas of theoretical physics that you have heard of but never fully explored. Peter has expanded his successful 6-week course into 8 weeks without adding any new material. This will allow more time to cover the following topics:

  1. Gravity from Isaac Newton to Albert Einstein.
  2. Quantum Theory and the search for the “Theory of Everything.”
  3. Radioactivity from Marie Curie to the atomic bomb.
  4. Particle physics from the ancient Greeks to the latest information on the quest for the “God Particle.”
  5. Astrophysics from the Big Bang to the universe’s ultimate fate.

This course requires no previous knowledge of its subject matter but will be fast-moving and wide-ranging.

Many of us shy away from Theoretical Physics because we think it is way over our heads, but Peter will make it very clear and straightforward so that we can all understand at least the basics and be able to discuss them with friends or grandchildren in a confident manner!
