Hacking the universe

When strings are super and not made of characters

String theory is our best candidate for a "Theory of Everything". In this final theory, we begin to understand the nature of space and time. This is a light introduction to these ideas for the general nerd.

We will discuss mini black holes, extra dimensions and all plot devices of your favorite scifi story. Besides elementary particle physics (by the time of 26C3 the LHC should finally be running) and cosmology (what really happened at the Big Bang) I will also discuss the role of computers in this endeavor (after all, the WWW is the teflon pan of particle physics!).
