A central goal that modern physicists share is finding a single theory that can explain the entire Universe and unite the forces of nature.

The standard model, for example, leaves dark matter, dark energy, and even gravity out of the picture — meaning that it really only accounts for a very small percentage of what makes up the Universe.

String theory stitches Einstein’s conception of the general theory of relativity together with quantum, echanics, and the result is quantum theory applied to gravity.
