EPISODE 4 - The mystery of origins. Part I: Cosmology

Dan Serb

Why is there a Universe? How did we get here? Why are we here? These questions have troubled the human mind for millennia. Religion sought to offer answers from the beginning of human thought; science joined the quest, though often finding itself at odds with religion. But are religion and science necessarily mutually exclusive? Can science withstand the same scrutiny to which religious claims are subjected? In this episode we discuss the Big Bang theory, particle physics, supersymmetry, multiverse, and the Higgs particle.
