Origin of Life and Universe


Where did we come from? Where are we going?

The question everyone asked atleast once in our life time and the easy answer from religious perspective is God Created! Oh, yea, then you cant ask who created God.

Science is all about asking the Why question and then figure out "How something happened". How is Sun (star) formed? How is Gold formed in Earth? Why everything falls to Earth? Can something arise from Nothing?

Lisa Randall: Atoms Only Make Up 5% of Our Universe. The Rest is Dark Matter and Energy.

Even though it makes up 69 per cent of the Universe, dark energy is  incredibly elusive. But theoretical physicist Lisa Randall is determined  to track down and understand the unseen parts of our existence.

Composition of Universe

  • 5% is composed of Galaxies, Stars, Planets, Humans, Animals, Birds, fish etc. 
  • 26% of Dark Matter
  • 69% of Dark Energy - Responsible for Expansion of Universe

Cosmos by Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan opens the program with a description of the cosmos and a  "Spaceship of the Imagination" (shaped like a dandelion seed). The ship  journeys through the universe's hundred billion galaxies, the Local  Group, the Andromeda Galaxy, the Milky Way, the Orion Nebula, our Solar  System, and finally the planet Earth. Eratosthenes' successful  calculation of the circumference of Earth leads to a description of the  ancient Library of Alexandria. 

A Universe from Nothing

The question "Why is there something rather than nothing?" has been  asked for millennia by people who argue for a creator of our universe.  Taking a trip back to the beginning of the beginning and the end of the  end—and reviewing the remarkable developments in cosmology and particle  physics over the past 40 years that have revolutionized our picture of  the universe—Lawrence M. Krauss explores the discoveries that have  revolutionized our understanding of both nothing and something. 

Is the Universe a simuation?

Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate

What may have started as a science fiction speculation—that perhaps the  universe as we know it is a computer simulation—has become a serious  line of theoretical and experimental investigation among physicists,  astrophysicists, and philosophers.  Neil deGrasse Tyson, Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden  Planetarium, hosts and moderates a panel of experts in a lively  discussion about the merits and shortcomings of this provocative and  revolutionary idea. 

Universe in a Nutshell - Michio Kaku

What if we could find one single equation that explains every force in  the universe? Dr. Michio Kaku explores how physicists may shrink the  science of the Big Bang into an equation as small as Einstein's  e=mc^2. Thanks to advances in string theory, physics may allow us to  escape the heat death of the universe, explore the multiverse, and  unlock the secrets of existence. He also presents a  history of physics and makes a  compelling case for why physics is the key to pretty much everything.

Universe or Multiverse - World Science Festival

World Science Festival Series - New York.

The inflationary theory of cosmology, an enduring theory about our  universe and how it was formed, explains that just after the Big Bang,  the universe went through a period of rapid expansion. This theory has  been critical to understanding what's going on in the cosmos today.

Through informed debate among architects of the inflationary theory and  its prime competitors, this program will explore our best attempts to  understand where we came from.

Fundamental Building Blocks of Universe

According to our best theories of physics, the fundamental building  blocks of matter are not particles, but continuous fluid-like substances  known as 'quantum fields'. David Tong explains what we know about these  fields, and how they fit into our understanding of the Universe.

David Tong is a professor of theoretical physics at Cambridge University, specialising in quantum field theory.

Origin of Life: How life started on Earth

Four and a half billion years ago, the young Earth was a hellish place—a  seething chaos of meteorite impacts, volcanoes belching noxious gases,  and lightning flashing through a thin, torrid atmosphere. Then, in a  process that has puzzled scientists for decades, life emerged. But how?  Mineralogist Robert Hazen as he journeys around the globe. From an  ancient Moroccan market to the Australian Outback, he advances a  startling and counter intuitive idea—that the rocks beneath our feet ...

The Genius of Charles Darwin: Life, Darwin & Everything

In the first episode Richard Dawkins explains the basic mechanisms of  natural selection, & tells the story of how Charles Darwin developed  his theory.  He teaches a year 11 science class about evolution, which many of the  students are reluctant to accept. He then takes them to the Jurassic  Coast in Dorset to search for fossils, hoping that the students can see  some of the evidence for themselves.

Part 2: Genius of Charles Darwin: 5th Ape
Part 3: Genius of Charles Darwin: God Strikes Back

The God Delusion - Richard Dawkins

Dawkins first came to prominence with his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, which popularised the gene-centred view of evolution and introduced the term, meme. With his book The Extended Phenotype (1982), he introduced into evolutionary biology the influential concept that the phenotypic effects of a gene are not necessarily limited to an organism's body, but can stretch far into the environment. In The God Delusion (2006), he contends that a supernatural creator almost certainly does not exist.

V.S Ramachandran - NeuroScientist

Dr. Ramachandran explains the latest findings of neurosciences  concerning the functioning of the brain. In doing so, he forcefully  argues against Wendy Doniger's Freudian psychoanalysis of Hindu deities,  and debunks the methodology used by such scholars.

The Self is an illusion - Sam Haris

Sam Harris describes the properties of consciousness and how mindfulness  practices of all stripes can be used to transcend one's ego. Harris is  the author of Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion

Dark Matter and Dinosaurs - Lisa Randall

Harvard professor Lisa Randall (Warped Passages, Knocking on Heaven’s  Door) is among our most influential theoretical physicists. Her new  book, Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, explores the consequences of the  comet responsible for the dinosaurs’ extinction, speculates about other  possible missing elements and illustrates the importance of preserving  the elements on Earth that are vital to our existence.

Science refutes Gods

On the fundamental question--evolution or creation?--Americans are on  the fence. According to one survey, while 61% of Americans believe we  have evolved over time, 22% believe this evolution was guided by a  higher power, with another 31% on the side of creationism. For some,  modern science debunks many of religion's core beliefs, but for others,  questions like "Why are we here?" and "How did it all come about?" can  only be answered through a belief in the existence of God. 

The God Delusion Debate

The God Delusion Debate pits world-renowned atheist and scientist  Professor Richard Dawkins against his Oxford University colleague  Professor John Lennox, who is both a scientist and a Christian  theologian. In this, his first visit to the so-called Bible Belt,  Dawkins debates his views as expressed in "The God Delusion" and their  validity over and against the Christian faith. The event garnered  national and international attention from The Times of London, NPR, BBC,  Christian Post, ..
