Originally formulated in the 70's, the conformal bootstrap is the ambitious idea that one can use internal consistency conditions to carve out, and eventually solve, the space of conformal field theories. In this talk I will review recent developments in the field which boosted this program to a new level and led, for instance, to the most precise determination of the 3D Ising critical exponents.
I will describe how the bootstrap lets us address questions across theoretical physics, from boiling water to quantum gravity.
