This Funzing Experience:

The search for the ultimate theory of physics is the greatest prize in science. Describing everything from what goes on inside black holes to the moment the universe began, it would represent the final triumph of the human mind over the mysteries of nature. Or so the argument goes.


For almost a hundred years physicists have spent entire careers attempting to crack this ultimate problem. Einstein spent the last two decades of his life chasing the dream of a final theory, Stephen Hawking went looking for it before concluding it didn’t exist.

If the Theory of Everything is ever found, then two seemingly incompatible descriptions of the universe will have to be brought together: Einstein’s theory of gravity, the General Theory of Relativity, and quantum field theory, the theory of the micro-scale.

In this mind-bending talk, particle physicist, Dr. Harry Cliff will reveal the ongoing quest for the Theory of Everything, why it has defeated some of the greatest minds in science, what we would do with it if we found it and whether such a theory is even possible in the first place.

Venue: The George IV

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
