  • The problem of reconciling general relativity and quantum theory has fascinated and bedeviled physicists for more than 70?years. Despite recent progress in string theory and loop quantum gravity, a complete solution remains out of reach. I review the status of the continuing effort to quantize gravity, emphasizing the underlying conceptual issues and the various attempts to come to grips with them.
