George Smoot on the design of the Universe
    #11400571 - 11/06/09 09:43 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

This 18 minute video is basically a must see.
Absolutely incredible. It'll be worth your time- I promise.

Pretty good stuff. Kinda explaining stuff we already know, but I like the 3d modeling he is doing. It gives you a great way to look at space time which is always nice in a presentation. Hope we can one day do what he is saying, only possible I guess if we can get the telescopes to go that far though.

Cool vid though for anyone interested in space/physics or just interesting things in general.


--------------------
The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.

Yeah, I agree - love the way the 3D model let's you see it better.
