Even though I have a lot of things on my mind, I do wish
to know what science knows about the universe that we
live in. Reading books helps, but sometimes they confuse
and who has time to read enough to make sense of it all ?.
I accidentally ran into http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ImvlS8PLIo, a
Cosmologist. He explains stuff in layman's terms, what
would be hard to digest and take a lifetime of expertise to
decipher for the uninitiated.
What is the size, shape, density, mass and direction of
our universe ?. How do we know, what we do, about it ?.
What lies in the future for us ?, what special time are we
living in, right now, wrt the history of our universe, etc.
He is articulate, witty, funny and before you know it, an
hour has passed and he has gone from Einstein to Richard
Feynman. If you have taken Physics in High School, it
should be enough to make this an interesting outing.
