Next Major String Theory Debate

There is going to be a debate between Brian Greene and Lawrence Krauss on March 28 in Washington DC at the National Museum of Natural History. I would like to thank Peter Woit who pointed this out on his blog.

Brian Greene is a professor of physics and professor of mathematics at Columbia University in New York City. He will argue in defense of String Theory. He believes String Theory provides the best candidate for the unification of physics.

Lawrence Krauss is a professor of physics and a professor of astronomy at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He maintains even though string theory solves mathematical ideas on paper, it hasn't solved any problems in physics. Furthermore, it is so complex we don't even know what it is.

Hopefully we will learn some interesting things from this. String Theory debates are always fun.
