String Theory Explained – What is The True Nature of Reality?

This is probably the cutest video I watched in weeks. You won’t get the answer to the question, but will get a nice explanation of why String Theory is useful in the way to decipher the deepest secrets of nature.

Cool, mesmerizing fluid dynamics.

Cool, mesmerizing fluid dynamics.

Caption: When two fluids move past each other at different speeds, complex instabilities arise. Mathematicians want to prove that the Navier-Stokes equations can predict what will happen in every possible case.
