5.0 out of 5 stars A very good documentary!, 9 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Nova: Elegant Universe [DVD] [2003] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A great production of NOVA based on the best-seller book of Brian Greene. This is a very ingenious documentary of physics with an excellent animation made of great special effects that helps you to visualize the physical ideas, like for example, the fabric of space-time. With the help of great interviews with many important physicists like Steven Weinberg, John Schwarz, Michael Green, Ed Witten, Jim Gates,..., Brian Greene explains to the public the basic ideas of general relativity and quantum mechanics, then the conflict between them and finally the string theory itself, the promising ultimate theory of Cosmos. The part I of this three-part show is in my opinion the best one because it presents a very good historical introduction of the development of physics and explains the main ideas of newtonian gravitation, general relativity, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics in a very simple way. As a physicist I obviously didn't learn nothing new but I enjoy very much to watch this three-part show and I recommend it to everyone.
