2011 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: The Theory of Everything

Can the entire universe be explained with a single, unifying theory? This is perhaps the most fundamental question in all of science and it may also be the most controversial.

Albert Einstein was among the first to envision a unified theory that could account for the behavior of all matter and energy in the cosmos, but a definitive solution has eluded physicists to this day. In this Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate, recorded on March 7, 2011, Neil deGrasse Tyson moderated a panel of the world’s leading voices on this great scientific question.
