Universe web site explores whether tiny strings vibrating in eleven
dimensions could be the ultimate explanation for everything.

Theory Companion Site
Eleven dimensions? A world made entirely out of strings? It's not
science fiction. It's string theory. NOVA has teamed up with New York animation
artist Odd Todd to capture the underlying humor of the ever-elusive Theory

One of the most ambitious and exciting
theories ever proposed—one that may be the long-sought Theory of Everything,
that eluded even Einstein—gets a masterful, lavishly computer-animated
explanation from bestselling author-physicist Brian Greene, when NOVA presents
the nuts, bolts, and sometimes outright nuttiness of string theory, on
