Totally last minute, Inside Edition wants me to explain the scientific plausibility of building an ark of the dimensions of Noah's Ark. Could a flood phenomenon like that exist? In preparation for the Noah Movie. Any suggestions?

Check out the "2012" horror movie. The Chinese made modern version of Noah's ark appears towards the end of the movie.
The flood in the movie is caused by a sudden change in the earth's core temperature due to a large neutrino flux delivered by a massive solar flare.
I read somewhere that a theory on this exists and was endorsed by Einstein...

Today is a big day for physics. Andrei Linde and Renata Kallosh (in the video) were two dear professors of mine at Stanford. She was part of my doctoral dissertation committee. Their reaction is priceless! Want to find out more about gravitational waves? Try this nice article: http://bit.ly/1gFpVC8

Story
Tagline
A physicist with a deep passion for communicating science to the masses. Secondary life as philosopher and actor. Made in Mexico.
Introduction
A Stanford-trained physicist who is very passionate about communicating science. My initiatives to popularize science have impacted thousands of people around the world. For my Ph.D. Dissertation I invented a highly effective technique to focus wireless signals in targeted locations. This method allows for secure communications among desired users inside buildings. The applications of this technique extend to the medical and entertainment fields. I also published research in the field of nano-physics.

I have a huge passion to popularize science and motivate young minds to think analytically and critically about the world. This has led me to pioneer learning initiatives in schools and universities in Mexico, Africa, the US and Israel. I'm a frequent public speaker [http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/TEDxEast-Debbie-Berebichez-How] and have been recognized by numerous media outlets such as Oprah, CNN, WSJ, TED, DLD, WIRED, Martha Stewart, City of Ideas, Dr. Oz Show, Celebrity Scientist and others. I regularly appear as a science expert on different international TV networks; co-hosted National Geographic’s “Humanly
Impossible” and the upcoming show 'You've Been Warned' on the Discovery channel.
