Lawrence M. Krauss: A Universe From Nothing

Lawrence M. Krauss: A Universe From Nothing

The Colbert Report

Fresh off his appearance on The Colbert Report, internationally-known theoretical physicist and ASU professor Lawrence M. Krauss presents A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather Than Nothing.

One of the few prominent scientists today to have actively crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss reveals that modern science is addressing the question of why there is something rather than nothing, with surprising and fascinating ­results. He details these mind-bending new theories, suggesting that they show that not only can something arise from nothing, something will always arise from nothing. With his characteristic wry humor, Krauss also takes us back to the beginning of the beginning, presenting the most recent evidence for how our universe evolved—and the implications for how it's going to end. "Forget Jesus," Krauss has argued, "the stars died so you could be born." As Richard Dawkins has described it: This could potentially be the most important scientific book with implications for supernaturalism since Darwin.
