Nodachi shot stills and interview material with Institute of Physics Gold Medal winner Edward Witten. Edward is an American theoretical physicist with a main focus on mathematical physics. He is also a professor at the Institute for Advanced Study, and is a leading researcher in superstring theory, supersymmetric quantum field theories and other areas of mathematical physics. He is regarded by many of his peers as one of the greatest living physicists, and is currently the only physicist to have received the highest honor in mathematics, the Fields Medal.
As part of the Journey to CERN project that we are currently undertaking, we met with Edward at the Mela White House hotel in Great Portland Street London, to pick his brains on Super String Theory. The day before he had received the Isaac Newton Gold Medal of The Institute of Physics.
