Summary Einstein spent his final decades trying to create an all-encompassing mathematical model of the universe. In this program, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku and experts from Cambridge, MIT, and elsewhere discuss Einstein's revolutionary time/space theories of 1905, the ascendancy of quantum mechanics and string theory, and Einstein's unswerving belief that the laws of nature -- elegant and precise -- must reveal a universe of divine predictability down to the last subatomic particle. A gripping dramatization of Einstein's last two days paints a vivid portrait of an idealistic scientist who never gave up seeking.
