The Origins of The Universe
Sean Carroll was at London Real studios to drop some crazy knowledge about quantum mechanics, gravity, and cosmology.
An American theoretical physicist, his research explores dark matter, extra dimensions and the origins of the Universe, and his work has been published in The New York Times and the New Scientist magazine.
The thing I love about Sean Carroll is that he’s able to take very complex theories and distill them down to bite-size ideas that regular people can understand.
Something Deeply Hidden
And as result, Sean been invited to speak on many television shows including “The Colbert Report”, Morgan Freeman’s “Through the Wormhole” and “The Universe” on the History Channel.
In his latest book, Something Deeply Hidden, Sean Carroll explores what it means to exist on a the speck of dust in a possibly infinite universe.
I was really excited to talk to Sean Carroll. He’s an insanely knowledgeable guy and I know you’re going to find this episode fascinating.
