Physics of Light, The

Synopsis
Six-part documentary series exploring the concepts of physics from familiar theories, such as Newton’s Law of Gravity, to the latest in scientific research, like string theory and M-theory. By connecting all of this research with the medium of light, we can gain a deeper understanding not only of our immediate reality, but of the unseen realities that are hidden beyond our perception. Starting with Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, Physics of Light explores the true nature of light, peers inside the atom, and looks ahead to the most cutting edge theories in physics.

Episodes include:
Light and Time - The Special Theory of Relativity
Light and Space - The Theory of General Relativity
In Pursuit of Light
