Brian Greene's first popular book, The Elegant Universe, has been a bestseller and PBS/NOVA shot a $3.5 million TV program with the same name.
His second popular book, The Fabric of the Cosmos, was also successful. So a natural next step is to shoot a PBS/NOVA program with the same name!
It will first be aired on November 2nd; three other episodes will be aired on 9th, 16th, and 23rd.
You see a couple of well-known faces in the trailer. Recall that The Fabric of the Cosmos was about the evolving scientific understanding of the space and time. See Brian Greene himself (2 minutes plus 1 minute of answers) explaining what will be included in the program.
