Interview: Lawrence Krauss!
Dr. Krauss is an internationally known theoretical physicist, who currently works as a Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Physics Department, and Inaugural Director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University. He is the author of numerous papers and ten popular books, including A Universe from Nothing. We were privileged to be joined by Dr. Krauss back in August, when we discussed the intersection of religion, science, and politics.

Quote of the Week: “Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life – weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.” – Lawrence Krauss
