Katie Silver has penned an article for BBC Earth in which she explores the idea of finding a single theory that describes the entire Universe. But as her article aptly points out, it's a challenge that appears to be getting increasingly difficult.
For its awards held over the weekend, the BAFTAs commissioned posters for each of the best film nominees. In each one, designed by artist Malika Favre, character and plot development is hidden in the shadows. Above is part of the Birdman poster from the "Big Reveal" campaign. The full one is below.
Bad news: We don't get to see Tatiana Maslany star in a standalone Star Wars film. Good news: Felicity Jones, who was pretty darn impressive as Jane Hawking in The Theory of Everything, won the role that Rooney Mara and Maslany were competing for.
The Theory Of Everything is a remarkable, moving portrait of Stephen Hawking, who overcame unthinkable obstacles to revolutionize science. It's a beautiful romance that spans the 1960s through the 1980s. Too bad the movie mostly glosses over the actual science that Hawking became famous for. Minor spoilers below...
Eddie Redmayne pulls off a tremendous feat in The Theory of Everything, playing Stephen Hawking from the early 1960s to the late 1980s. Not surprisingly, he's already getting a lot of Oscar buzz. We sat down with Redmayne for an exclusive interview and he told us what it was like to meet the real Hawking.
Fox is nearing a deal to make Dan Casey's one-off comic Theory Of Everything into a wild science thriller. The main character is a disgraced scientist who is desperately trying to save his (formerly presumed dead) wife from a parallel dimension. How? With science!
SciAm's George Musser takes a crack at explaining one of the most complex (and controversial) concepts in all of physics — all in less than 26 seconds. Not bad, Musser. But can you do it for M-theory? What about those 11 dimensions of vibrating strings?
String theory is one of the more popular candidates to combine quantum mechanics and relativity into a grand unified theory. But it had remained completely untestable until recent experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. The early results don't look good.
