On the origin of time: A quantum beginning

Perhaps the biggest question Stephen Hawking tried to answer was how our universe could have created conditions so perfectly hospitable to life. He worked with his friend and collaborator Thomas Hertog for twenty years on a quantum theory of the big bang to account for this. They found a deeper level of evolution in which physical laws transform and simplify until particles, forces, and even time itself fades away. Join Thomas Hertog to explore the final theory he and Hawking published together.
