What is time? Is time travel possible? What is a black hole like? Here are some clear and fascinating explanations of many idiosyncrasies of science and philosophy on which modern physics has been shedding new light. "Matter," says Paul Davies, "is far more nebulous and mysterious than we thought." Prepare yourself for an excursion into a world of quarks and cryptic clues, as the world takes on a complex but orderly shape, and the beauty and wonder of natural laws shine through. "There is more to the universe," says Davies, "than meets the eye." (hosted by Michael Toms)
