Tangled Up in Spacetime

Hundreds of researchers—including School of Natural Sciences Members Eva Silverstein (1999), Vijay Balasubramanian (2007–08), Brian Greene (1992–93), and Hirosi Ooguri (2015, 1988–89), and School of Mathematics Member Dorit Aharonov (1998–99)—are engaged in a collaborative project, "It from Qubit," sponsored by the Simons Foundation.
