Brian Greene is a renowned physicist, but it is his skill as a storyteller that allows him to render scientific theory accessible to general audiences. In his new book Until the End of Time, Greene crafts a wondrous tale of the co-evolution of our universe and the human mind, from the big bang to the end of time, with quantum mechanics, black holes, and human life in between. He writes of a universal quest for truth on a cosmic scale, uncovering mysteries hidden in space. Greene visits CHF to discuss the ideas that govern our universe and why understanding them opens up a whole new reality.
