String Theory


Really Smart



String Theory
String Theory? Pfft. Okay, here’s the deal: It’s a way of trying to explain the universe, but it’s so ridiculous that we have to make up words to make it sound scientific. Basically, it’s a theory that suggests that all matter is made up of tiny little strings that vibrate at different frequencies. It also suggests that these strings exist in 11 dimensions, but no one’s really sure what those dimensions are. So yeah, it’s pretty out there. Here’s an example: If a string vibrates at a certain frequency, it could create a particle like an electron. If it vibrates at a different frequency, it could create something completely different, like a quark. It’s like a guitar string, but instead of creating sound, it creates matter. Fun Fact: String Theory has been used to explain the behavior of black holes!
