This video is called "String Theory". Well, the available evidence indicates that this particular effect is indeed not explained by string theory but a string theorist was able to qualitatively reproduce the observations using a particular machine in my office. Do you know which one? Do you have a better explanation? :-)
If you want to see a new Brian Greene :-) who explains string theory in 117 seconds, see AEinstein04. Well, I guess that the creator of the video will have to try harder but I haven't seen the competitors yet. :-)
Have you ever wondered how string theory looks like it she is a woman? Will Wilson proposes a rather natural, robust answer for $49,000. You must be over 21 years to click here. For the readers who can't focus: yes, the string is there. As you can see, it's a subtle question whether string theory is beautiful and it what sense it is. But there is something about it that one simply can't ignore. :-) You can compare her beauty with the beauty of loop quantum gravity.
