Carlo Rovelli - The Journey to Quantum Gravity

The ongoing search for the quantum theory of gravity, namely the quantum theory of space and time, is among the most fascinating open problems in theoretical physics. It requires us to change our understanding of space and time. Carlo Rovelli - Director of the Quantum Gravity research group of the Centre de physique théorique in Marseille, France - presents the state of the art of this search and discuss the conceptual implications of the ideas studied.
