More than a theory | Sabine Hossenfelder, Bjørn Ekeberg, Sam Henry

Philosophy For Our Times

Is it time to shift our perception of the universe? Listen to what the experts have to say.There are thousands of big ideas to discover at IAI.tv – videos, articles, and courses waiting for you to explore. Find out more: https://iai.tv/podcast-offersSince the 1970s we have understood the world through the lens of the Standard Model and its account of the forces and particles that make up the universe. But a series of deep puzzles have emerged. And now, even more significantly, a new force has been discovered throwing the whole theory into question.Can the Standard Model be modified to answer the increasing number of challenges it faces? Or is the Standard Model fatally flawed - and time for the next great paradigm shift to a radically different account of the universe? Alternatively, should we conclude that all theories have limitations and not worry about the flaws, however profound they might be?CERN research scientist Sam Henry, renowned author and theoretical physicist Sabine Hossenfelder, and distinguished philosopher of science Bjørn Ekeberg discuss whether it is time to move past the standard model of particle physics. Acclaimed science writer Philip Ball hosts. See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Sabine Hossenfelder LOOK FOR INCONSISTENCY!

Into the Impossible With Brian Keating

Sabine Hossenfelder has a PhD in physics and is presently a Research Fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS).Sabine works on physics beyond the standard model, phenomenological quantum gravity, and modifications of general relativity. Hossenfelder has also been researching since at least 2008 on how technology is changing researchers' ability to publicize, discuss, or publish their research, when she co-organized the Science in the 21st Century workshop.She has written more than 70 research articles, mostly dedicated to quantum gravity and physics beyond the standard model.In her channel "Science without the gobbledygook," Sabine talks straight about science: No hype, no spin, no tip-toeing around inconvenient truths. New video each Saturday.Hossenfelder's first book, Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray, released in June 2018. A review in Nature described it as "provocative", and Frank Wilczek recommended it as an "intensely personal and intellectually hard-edged" book.https://www.youtube.com/c/SabineHossenfelderSabine blogs at backreaction.blogspot.comAudible is hands-down my favorite platform for consuming podcasts, fiction and nonfiction books!

Sabine Hossenfelder and Luke Barnes - The fine-tuning of the Universe: Was the cosmos made for us?

Unbelievable?

The Big Conversation - Episode 4 | Season 3. Many physicists have pointed out the extraordinary ‘fine tuning’ of the physical laws of the universe that have allowed life to develop within the cosmos. Luke Barnes believes it gives evidence for a designer behind the cosmos, whereas Sabine Hossenfelder disagrees, questioning whether we can even speak of ‘fine tuning’ as a phenomenon.
