Brian Greene, string theory evangelist, introduces his big idea to help open the Ideas Festival. He tells the story of a soldier in Iraq who found solace in the grand concepts in a book by Greene. Greene connects this to a need for better understanding and education of science in the American education system.

Hosted by the Aspen Institute, The 2008 Aspen Ideas Festival will engage its participants in a variety of programs, tutorials, seminars and discussion events which together are guaranteed to charge the atmosphere with vibrant intellectual exchange. Think of it as a week-long summer university for the mind -- remarkable lectures and classes across a stimulating array of topics.
