Is the universe a hologram?

Join our Café Scientifique to discuss one of physics' boldest theories


It may sound like science fiction, but a lesser known branch of string theory, holography, is stepping into the limelight with some bold ideas about our universe. Holography predicts that all the information in our 3D universe is contained in a mysterious 2D image, like a hologram.

Promising not only to unite Einstein’s relativity with quantum physics, holography has the potential to provide us with cleaner energy, faster computers, and novel electronics.

Join Andrew O’Bannon to discover if holography has the answers and find out why it really matters.
