What the heck is String Theory?

Although restaurants are likely to open soon, we do not know when we be able to present our Café & Kosmos in the usual surroundings again. Therefore we decide to offer our next event in an online video conference.

The famous String Theory is possibly the most abstract of all disciplines in physics. Its origins date back to 1919, when the concept of “extra dimensions” first appeared by the hand of the German mathematician Theodor Kaluza. Ever since, String Theory keeps helping and also confusing physicists in many different contexts, from particle physics to quantum gravity. Dr. Veronica Errasti Diez explains the changes and different roles of String Theory in the past decades – emphasizing the latest, quite surprising developments.

This event will take place in English language.
