The Universe is still a place of mystery and wonder. As a cosmologist, I am thrilled that we can make some progress in combating what they seem very basic questions.
These programs focus on: Was there a beginning? Are we alone? What is the future of the cosmos?
What is the nature of reality? With each advance, new questions more clearly. The key question is what does not yet know.
Are we alone?
Sir Martin explores the possibility of life on planets outside our own. It tells you unsettling scientific debate that has startling consequences for us Earthlings. Do you believe in aliens? If not, a quick look through these pages may change your mind!
Why are we here?
Everything you thought you knew about the universe is wrong. It is made of atoms, right? Evil atoms represent only a paltry 15% of everything that exists. The mass of the universe consists of something so mysterious and elusive that it has been called “”dark matter””.
Are We Real?
There is a fundamental chasm in our understanding of ourselves, the universe, and everything. To solve this, Sir Martin takes us on a mind-boggling journey through multiple universes to post-biological life. On the way we learn of the disturbing possibility that we could be the product of someone else’s experiment.
