For Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek, the empty space is not nothing -Interview with Martijn van Calmtho

Fellow physicists dream about a Theory of Everything. Frank Wilczek is looking for a Theory of Nothing. Where the empty space is not nothing. The Nobel Prize winner explains.

Imagine you're a fish, says Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek in his cool office at the Alba Nova university center in a hot summer Stockholm. A small room with a large window at the end of an infinitely long corridor, far away from the university crowds. View of a lake, sailing boats. In the forest on the other side, according to the city plan, the royal cemetery is located.
