  • From the quark, so small nobody will ever see it, to the 53-mile-long supercollider, so expensive we never built it, the world of physical science gropes with the deepest question of all: "Why is there something instead of nothing?" In this program with Bill Moyers, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg discusses the nature of scientific inquiry and its close relationship to everyday life. Can scientific research into the beginnings of the universe lead us to discover a sense of beauty in the world around us and in our minds?
