Readers of Hugh Ross' book, Beyond the Cosmos, may find themselves struggling to visualize the complexities of string theory. That's where The Elegant Universe comes in. Theoretical physicist Brian Greene introduces viewers to the wild and wacky world of string theory. Originally aired as part of PBS's Nova series, this visually stunning documentary gives viewers a solid overview of a very complex subject. Although the video appeals to the "multi-universe" hypothesis as a naturalistic alternative to supernatural creation, its overall educational value is otherwise strong and highly engaging.
