  Abstract: After Einstein advanced the theory of relativity, because the Quantum Field Theory and General Relativity are not consistent with each other, people have been committed to finding a unified theory to explain all the interactions, which means Quantum Field Theory and General Relativity should be unified in a larger theoretical framework. This larger theoretical framework for the emerging trends is Superstring Theory. As a theory of quantum gravity, Superstring Theory has experienced a series of difficulties and changes. After learning Bilingual Physics with Multimedia founded by Professor Yun, we were encouraged and conducted a simple study on this topic. This paper briefly describes the study history of Superstring Theory, including two revolutions, the development and discusses the relevant physical model, theoretical framework and the physical concepts, and investigates the relevant issues according to their validity and significance of future development.
