Through the Worm Hole Season 3 episode 5 what is nothing? In this documentary Morgan Freeman explores the concept of nothing. We all have some picture of what nothing is but are these ideas really true? To find out we have to look into the newly discovered science of quantum mechanics, a strange and mind bending world that doesn't seem to fit into the normal realm of reality at all. The generally view of nothing is the space between the stars but are view on this has changed in recent years as scientists have dug deeper and deeper on the voyage to uncover the holy grail, the “code” behind the universe. Answering questions about the universe only raises even more because we know that the universe started with the big bang around 13.8 billion years ago but what was there before the universe existed? Is this the true “nothing”?
In the documentary what is nothing? Morgan Freeman interviews many figureheads from the scientific community such as NASA Physicist Slava Turyshev, String theorist Gabriele Veneziano and Max Tegmark who tell us their theories behind nothing which is certainly interesting. We have come a long way to finding the most fundamental properties of reality but questions like this lead us to believe we still a very long way away from really understanding what is going on.
