21st Century Geniuses

A genius is defined as one who has exceptional intellectual or creative power or another natural ability. On this episode, "Full Frame" introduces you to those who are among the world’s 21st century geniuses. From one of the oldest to one of the youngest, from the man being called “the next Albert Einstein” to a woman who was a child prodigy, they each offer their own unique gift of high intellect.

Nima Arkani-Hamed is considered one of the top minds at the forefront of theoretical physics, and a 21st century genius. Known for being a disruptive force in science over the course of his career, his revolutionary theories about the functioning of the universe openly push boundaries.

Recently, Arkani-Hamed agreed to serve as the inaugural director of a controversial proposal to build the world’s largest particle accelerator in China. The hope is that this powerful machine will find particles that Europe’s Large Hadron Collider cannot, propelling science into a new era of physics research.

Nima Arkani-Hamed joins Mike Walter in the New York studio to talk more about his research, this exciting project and answers questions about understanding the universe.
