Focus-Science and Technology - - FOCUS MARKETPLACE -

Time rules our lives. From the ris­ing and set­ting of the sun to the cy­cles of na­ture and the bio­rhythms in our day, noth­ing so per­vades our ex­is­tence and yet is so dif­fi­cult to ex­plain. Time seems to be wo­ven into the very fab­ric of the uni­verse. But why?

Join Pro­fes­sor Sean Car­roll, noted au­thor and Se­nior Re­search As­so­ciate in Physics at the Cal­i­for­nia In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, on a mind-bend­ing jour­ney for the an­swer to that ques­tion in Mys­ter­ies of Mod­ern Physics: Time. Guid­ing you through the past, present, and fu­ture, these 24 riv­et­ing lec­tures il­lu­mi­nate how a phe­nom­e­non we all ex­pe­ri­ence ac­tu­ally con­nects us to the in­stant of the uni­verse’s for­ma­tion—and pos­si­bly to a mul­ti­verse that is unimag­in­ably larger and more var­ied than the known cos­mos.
