Theoretical physicists have long dreamt of a theory of everything that encompasses all particles of matter and their interactions. Dartmouth professor Marcelo Gleiser describes how physics and astronomy obtain knowledge of the natural world and how their limitations preclude us from ever getting to a “final” theory.

Underwriter: Tapia & Huckabay, P.C.

Presented in honor of Middlebury Professor of Physics Richard Wolfson
