Toward the Unification of Physics

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

  • Steve Weinberg

Friday 8th March, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Recent news from the CERN laboratory in Geneva has revealed the existence of a heavy unstable particle that had been predicted by the theory that unifies two of the forces of nature. This is the last missing piece of our current theory of known elementary particles, the Standard Model. But there is much left to be done before we have a thoroughly unified theory of all matter and force, and some of this will involve observations from space.
