Recently Sean Carroll has been discussing his work in what he presents as an emerging space-time in Quantum Mechanics.

Along with answering Reddit’s physics threads about this work, Quanta Magazine has also posted and explanation and construction of emerging Space-time.  Jen was especially excited since she actually did extensive studies from textbooks he’s written, so the range Carroll has addressed in his works and publications, and academia as well as leading journals, is really fun to observe and read!

Science By Number also asks Sean not only about articles and textbooks, and a recent book for a more general audience called The Big Picture, but we also want to know what Sean finds to be the most exciting thing happening right now in physics as well as what he thinks physics can address and what it should avoid trying to say it has answers for.

It was an exhilarating, eclectic adventure and we are really happy to welcome Sean Carroll for this morning’s Science By Number with Jes and Jen!
