Project Title

The Nature of Reality

Project Summary

Since 1974 on broadcast and 1996 on its web platform, NOVA has tackled challenging physics and other science subjects, making them exciting and understandable to a lay audience. We have the skills and experience to present groundbreaking physics discoveries and fundamental questions in the field, and we have an enormous lay audience standing by with a strong appetite for this topic. However, without securing additional, targeted funding, we are unable to cover timely reporting on a regular basis, or to create web-exclusive content that is not tied directly to a NOVA program or its subject matter. Only with FQXi's support can we make this kind of newsworthy and innovative content a reality through the continuation of NOVA's weekly physics blog, 'The Nature of Reality.' Covering foundational questions in physics is a perfect fit with NOVA's editorial mission, responds to our web audience's clear interest in math and physics, and aligns with our goal of promoting the public interest in and understanding of foundational physics.
