The God Equation – The Quest to Find a Theory of Everything

Michio Kaku In Conversation With Robin Ince

The superstar physicist takes on the mind-bending ride through the twists and turns of an epic scientific journey: the quest to find a Theory of Everything.

Einstein dedicated his life to seeking this elusive Holy Grail, a single, revolutionary ‘god equation’ which would tie all the forces in the universe together, yet never found it. Some of the greatest minds in physics took up the search, from Stephen Hawking to Brian Greene. None have yet succeeded.

In this livestream conversation with author, comic and science broadcaster Robin Ince, renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku will share the story of a mystery that has fascinated him for most of his life.

He will guide us through the key debates in modern physics, from Newton’s law of gravity via relativity and quantum mechanics to the latest developments in string theory. This tale of dazzling breakthroughs and crushing dead ends will be illuminated by Kaku’s clarity, storytelling flair and infectious enthusiasm.

The object of the quest is now within sight: we are closer than ever to achieving the most ambitious undertaking in the history of science. If successful, the Theory of Everything could simultaneously unlock the deepest mysteries of space and time, and fulfil that most ancient and basic of human desires – to understand the meaning of our lives.
