The problem of quantum gravity is often said to be the most pressing unresolved problem in all of modern physics: our theories of spacetime and matter, described respectively by Einstein's theory of gravity and quantum mechanics still resist unification. Covered with Deep Mist provides the first book-length treatment of the history of attempts to bring quantum mechanics and gravitation together. The book aims to be accessible to a broad range of readers and goes beyond a merely technical examination to include social and cultural factors involved in the changing fortunes of the field. Suitable for both newcomers and seasoned quantum gravity professionals, the book will shine new light on this century-old, unresolved problem.
