The Morality of Fundamental Physics
Nima Arkani-Hamed
+Cornell University 

In this lecture, physicist Nima Arkani-Hamed argues that there is an invariant quality in the structure of the laws of nature that should guide a physicist's behaviour in the search for the truth.
Arkani-Hamed describes this as the "morality" of fundamental physics.

Recorded at Cornell University on April 21, 2016.

" In 1977 Carl Sagan gave the CHRISTMAS LECTURES on space travel. In his final lecture, he spoke about the human race venturing out into space; his words are as relevant now as they were then.
Day 14 of our advent calendar, A Place Called Space. "

Those are awfully boisterous accusations coming from someone who believes and and all incredulous conspiracy theories, all of which are based solely on hypothetical conjecture and massive leaps of imagination - rather than actual evidence.

One of the easiest roles.  He doesn't have to worry much about blocking.  They just plop him on set like a prop.  LOL

Cute kid.

He's the man with a seemingly endless stream of science fun facts at his command. He's also a great gourmet. We talk to the famed scientist about how his two great passions collide in the kitchen.

"I don't require that a candidate know science. I require, when I vote, that the candidate knows when they don't know science, and uses that as the occasion to talk to their advisors." - Neil DeGrasse Tyson

If a politician doesn't believe in science or climate change...that is one thing.  However....when the majority of the political might of a political party ignores it simply for political gain...that is the height of stupidity when representing the home constituents.

Are we alone in the universe?

Mars was once habitable - so could we be Martians or Martians be Earthlings? Setting foot on the Red Planet could help us uncover these and more questions.

NASA 360 joins Dr. John Grunsfeld, former Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, as he discusses the potential for life on Mars and what it will take to make such a discovery.

This video was created from a live recording at the Humans to Mars Summit in May 2016.

Google Plus has a cap of 5000 people in Circles total and the above Date and time is when we crossed that threshold. As a result of this policy I cannot Circle more people at this time with out un-Circling some early adopters. My current feelings are that would be unfair to them so please know I appreciate your interest but unfortunately I won't be Circling you until the above policy changes. 
Thank-you for your interest and understanding.

*Curator's Note*
To parents of young children ;
Your discretion is advised as episodes of strong language, Agnosticism, Free Thinking and Science may occur here with no further warning. You may want to use these an a teaching opportunity to discuss social conventions and human reproduction with your off-spring.
