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.
Shi Qiang gets a surprisingly efficient assistant, Xu Bingbing. After Wang Miao asks him whether there are other scientists like him – ones related to Shen Yufei, but such that neither became members of the Frontiers of Science, nor committed suicide, he points out Ye Wenjie as an example, and tells him about her past. Her grandfather met Einstein in 1922 when employed as child labourer in road construction. Her mother, also a scientist, lied and embellished that encounter, until the Cultural Revolution took hold in China. Ye Wenjie’s father, however, remained relentless and refused to deny scientific theories established by the West to abide by domestic politics. Ye Wenjie is shown mourning him soon thereafter.
