Accompany physicist and acclaimed author Brian Greene on a mind-bending reality check and journey to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time and the universe. With each step, discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize — a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected.

Space, far from being empty, is filled with some of the deepest mysteries of our times.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: The Illusion of Time
Take the ultimate time-travel adventure with Brian Greene, hurtling 50 years into the future before stepping into a wormhole to travel back to the past. Along the way, Greene reveals a new way of thinking about time in which moments past, present, and future — from the reign of T.Rex to the birth of your great-great-grandchildren — exist all at once.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Quantum Leap
Join Brian Greene on a wild ride into the weird realm of quantum physics, which governs the universe on the tiniest of scales. Greene brings quantum mechanics to life in a nightclub like no other, where objects pop in and out of existence and things over here can affect others over there, instantaneously — without anything crossing the space between them.
