Next Monday - the 22nd of May Q&A will broadcast a Sydney Writers Festival special from the ABC studios at 700 Harris Street, Ultimo.
On the panel is theoretical physicist Lawrence M. Krauss who is author of numerous books including ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told….So Far’.
See book blurb below:
In a landmark, unprecedented work of scientific history, Krauss leads us to the furthest reaches of space and time, to scales so small they are invisible
to microscopes, to the birth and rebirth of light, and into the natural forces that govern our existence. His unique blend of rigorous research and engaging
storytelling invites us into the lives and minds of the remarkable, creative scientists who have helped to unravel the unexpected fabric of reality - with reason
rather than superstition and dogma. Krauss has himself been an active participant in this effort, and he knows many of them well. The Greatest Story
challenges us to re-envision ourselves and our place within the universe, as it appears that "God" does play dice with the universe.
At this stage we would like to spread the word among community organisations including members of Australian Astronomy to come along and be part of the audience and probably ask a question.
