The Cosmic Landscape

Dr. Leonard Susskind, the Felix Bloch professor of theoretical physics at Stanford University in the field of string theory and quantum field theory, is widely regarded as one of the fathers of string theory for his early contributions to the String Theory model of particle physics. In this video he discusses his most recent book The Cosmic Landscape: String Theory and the Illusion of Intelligent Design

Does trying to understand modern string theory have you tied in knots? Have you ever wondered what a layman can learn from hadrons or the anthropic principle? Enjoy this lively program as Susskind explains the nuts and bolts of modern string theory and asks, "Can science explain the extraordinary fact that the universe appears to be uncannily, nay, spectacularly, well designed for our existence?"
