Theory for Everything

Stringscape. ‘In its near 40-year history, string theory has gone from a theory of hadrons to a theory of everything to, possibly, a theory of nothing. Indeed, modern string theory is not even a theory of strings but one of higher-dimensional objects called branes. Matthew Chalmers attempts to disentangle the immense theoretical framework that is string theory, and reveals a world of mind-bending ideas, tangible successes and daunting challenges – most of which, perhaps surprisingly, are rooted in experimental data.’
