The Elegant Universe DVD

To get Carolyn up to speed for SciBarCamp, we watched the Brian Greene documentary series The Elegant Universe. Greene is a very engaging presenter, and the series was excellent. Beware, though: don't buy The Elegant Universe and Beyond -- that's a repackaged DVD set at double the cost with two unrelated Einstein documentaries thrown in. The basic, original series of three hour-long documentaries is the one to get; has it for $19.95. Quite a terrific series, very well done.

I find Brian Greene's books absolutely wonderful introductions to super-cool-though-slightly-wacky notions regarding branes, string-theory, and, especially, time travel. (Especially for someone like myself who's scientifically illiterate...) Very fun, accessible stuff.
