Learn About the Mysteries of the Universe.

Humans have long wondered about the mysteries of the universe. When did the universe begin? Why are we here? What is the grand design of our universe? In the past, humanity explained the world’s natural phenomena, like rain, thunder, eclipses, and more as the work of various gods. Today, scientists have made incredible leaps in understanding exactly how our world works. Throughout The Grand Design, authors Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow explain the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe in a way that everyone can understand. Using simple language, some of today’s most brilliant minds aim to help anyone understand just how far our scientific development has come as well as explain what we still don’t know. As you read, you’ll learn whether or not free will exists, why our reality isn't necessarily the only reality, and how we humans are incredibly lucky to be alive.

Leonard Mlodinow: How did Stephen Hawking make science accessible?

Science Focus Podcast

Two years to the day the great physicist Professor Stephen Hawking was interred at Westminster Abbey, and at the time of his death, we spoke to one of the people that knew him best, Leonard Mlodinow.

Leonard is an American theoretical physicist who worked with Stephen on the books The Grand Design and A Briefer History of Time, and his own book chronicling their time together, Stephen Hawking: A Memoir of Friendship and Physics (£20, Allen Lane), will be released in September this year.

In this republished interview he speaks with BBC Science Focus editor Daniel Bennett about writing together, his qualities, and what they did when they weren’t talking physics.

The Boys are BACK feat. Stephen Hawking

Luke Squared

The two week hiatus is over! We start this bad boy with an interview with the notorious Stephen Hawking. We showed him respect, but unfortunately he's not a big fan of ours. Anyways, following this interview, we break down the coronavirus pandemic over the last few weeks and some frustration over the protests. We then give a brief description of our lives since you've last heard from us. Following the intro, Luke Squared answers two fan questions, including Kozy's cliffhanger from the last episode, and the respect we have for our geographic location. We then spoil the CRAP out of "The Killing of a Sacred Deer", and discuss some of the other movies/tv shows that we've been watching. We conclude this epic podcast with none other than a stoner thought and a Beta AF. Hopefully you guys enjoy this long episode and it makes up for our absence! #LukeSquared

John Cavadini - The Grand Design: An Augustinian Reply to Stephen Hawking

The Lumen Christi Institute

A lecture by theologian John Cavadini (Notre Dame), given at the University of Chicago on February 2, 2012.

In this talk, Professor Cavadini gives his response to a then-recent statement by acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking that philosophy was dead, and that science is the only reasonable method for securing knowledge. In response, Professor Cavadini argues that philosophy is rooted in man’s wonder about the universe, and that scientific inquiry is only one aspect of true wisdom and should not be privileged over others.

Stephen Hawking – 75th birthday lecture

Episode artwork
Read more

It was just as well I hadn’t been a student of Hoyle, because I would have been drawn into defending his steady state theory, a task which would have been harder than denying global warming.

Stephen Hawking

Note: In this episode we have removed the well known pauses between each sentence of Stephen Hawkings speach pattern. This so that you will easier be able to follow his quite complex thought pattern. To let you know how he actually spoke we have kept the very first pause.

This month the world saw a black hole for the very first time, after the idea of supermassive astronomical body like this – with a gravitatonal field so strong that not even light, travelling at 300 000 km/h, can escape it – was first proposed back in 1784! It’s a bit of a tradgedy that after hunting for almost 250 years, the worlds most famous, and extraordinary, black hole scientist would miss this historic event by just one year.

Stephen Hawking had a rare condition named Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS. The initial diagnosis, in his first year as a doctoral student, gave him only two more years to live. But although the illness gradually paralyzed his body, he lived for 50 more years, and his mind stayed as sharp as ever.

Before he died, on Einsteins birthday, 14 March 2018, Stephen Hawkings changed the face of theoretical physics, and gave us massive new insigths into, among other things, black holes – even though he sadly never got to see one. That speaks clearly to the power of science.

Hawking was not only a brilliant scientist, he was also a well known and loved science communicator. He wrote books, both for adults and children, held talks, and was depicted countless times in popular media.

In the talk you will hear in this episode of Kurator Hawking celebrated his 75th birthday, just a few monts before his death. He was one of the giants of science that now probably most other theoretical and astrophycisists stands on the shoulders of today, and it is well worth listening to him tell a bit of the story of his life and some of his discoveries.

Please enjoy this talk first held at Cambridge University, and streamed live by Your Discovery Science on July 2nd 2017. If you watch it on their channel you can also see the introductions by Brian Cox, Gabriela Gonzalez and Martin Rees.
