Theory postulates that all "elementary" particles are made up of one
dimensional strings that vibrate in 10 dimensions of space-time, 9 of space
and 1 of time. The reason we don't notice the other 6 spatial dimensions in

experimental evidence for this idea yet, but it's really just a work in

Michio Kaku wrote a book called Hyperspace thats about the 10 dimensions, i
