Three-Body (2023): S01E04


Three-Body (Chinese: 三体 or San ti) is a Chinese science fiction television series based on the novel The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin.

The series premiered on 15 January 2023.


The lab equipment for Wang Miao’s experiments is in need of maintenance, which convinces him to halt the experiments. The moment the last machine stops, the countdown halts and disappears from his vision. Frustrated, he calls Shen Yufei, who tells him they are not in control of what happens. When this explanation does not suffice, she gives him a website with Morse code instructions and advises him to look for the countdown in the cosmic microwave background, as it will begin again when he restarts his nanotech trials. To convince him that she is trying to avoid him meeting the same end as Yang Dong, she tells him that the universe will flicker for him. Later, he meets Ye Wenjie at her home, where she reminisces about her daughter and confesses guilt over her fate. Afterwards, Shi Qiang lets Wang Miao know that every dead scientist so far had come in contact with Shen Yufei shortly before committing suicide.
