Prof. Vijay Balasubramanian discusses time on Netflix series Explained

Vijay Balasubramanian, Cathy and Marc Lasry Professor and Center for Particle Cosmology faculty, was featured on the episode "Time" of the Netflix series Explained. The episode delved into the individual experience of time, the evolutionary pressures of time, and how we understand time as it relates to space and the universe. Prof. Balasubramanian explains that "matter and energy can bend space. And, even more dramatically, can bend time." He goes on to explain the limits of our understanding: "Clearly you can move to the right or the left in any spatial direction. So why can't I move up or down in time? Or, to the later times and to the earlier times? This is a really complicated and interesting question."
