Stephen Hawking - Theory of Everything

Alternative title
Stephen Hawking: Master of the Universe
Synopsis
Stephen Hawking tries to unify Einstein’s theory of relativity and quantum mechanics by seeking a single explanation for the entire universe. Hawking and other renowned thinkers including John Schwartz, Lisa Randall, Michio Kaku explore the revolutionary new ideas that have evolved since the publication of his book ‘A Brief History of Time’. Besides interviews, this documentary uses computer graphics and simple demonstrations to explain complex concepts. Topics include black holes, string theory, supersymmetry, dimensions beyond our perception, and the mysterious M force--all potential keys to unlocking the elusive "theory of everything".
