Summary
Take the ultimate time-travel adventure with Brian Greene, hurtling 50 years into the future before stepping into a wormhole to travel back to the past. Along the way, Greene considers a new way of thinking about time in which moments past, present, and future - from the reign of T. Rex to the birth of your great-great-grandchildren - exist all at once.
