Must. Set. Tivo!!!

I’ve had Brian Green’s book, The Elegant Universe for about a year now. So far, I have not found time to read it. I very much want to read it, but I am lame. Enter TV, with a 3 Part Nova Special:

This would-be revolution goes by the name of string theory, the most musical explanation of creation ever invented. It describes the elementary particles that make up nature not as little points but as vibrating strings of energy, a different “note” for each different kind of particle. How it developed and what it might mean is the subject of “The Elegant Universe,” starring the Columbia University physicist Brian Greene, author of the best-selling book of the same name. The three-part rags-to-riches story, which starts on Tuesday night, is billed as the biggest project “Nova” has ever done, with a $3.5 million budget, gobs of animation and special effects, and appearances by many of the leading lights of modern physics and string theory.

Sounds really interesting. I have to remember to record this.
