Vijay Balasubramanian, Cathy and Marc Lasry Professor, was featured in a recent episode of the Netflix series Explained. The episode, "Time", explores how humans experience time and how scientists understand it in relation to the universe. When discussing time as it relates to space, Prof. Balasubramanian explains that "matter and energy can bend space. And, even more dramatically, can bend time." At the individual level, Prof. Balasubramanian says "I think the perception of whether [time is] moving fast or slow has something to do with what you notice. Children notice everything. They're very much in the present. And having that process where every moment counts I think gives you the sense of a long period of time."
