Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek discusses his profound exploration of reality based on the ideas that form our understanding of the universe: time, space, matter, energy, complexity, and complementarity.
In this talk based on his new book, Frank explores essential concepts that form our understanding of what the world is and how it works.
Join Frank as he discusses what we know and how we know it, with a glimpse of what we may soon discover.
