Last Show Recap

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

Biography:

Dr. Mark Eberhart is the author of Why Things Break and Feeding the Fire. At age 16 Mark enrolled in at the University of Colorado where he received both a BS with majors in chemistry and applied mathematics and a MS in physical biochemistry. In 1979 he applied and was accepted to MIT as a Ph.D. candidate studying Materials Science and Engineering.

At the same time that Mark was preparing for his move to Boston, the Iranian revolution was in full swing and gasoline in the US was in short supply. Undeterred by the uncertainty, Mark placed six five-gallon cans full of gas next to his other possessions in the rented U-Hall and headed east. This trip seeded an interest in energy science and policy that never faded. Four years later Mark received his PhD and was one of a handful of scientist attempting to understand fracture at the quantum mechanical level.

The pursuit took him from MIT to Los Alamos National Laboratory and from there to the premier university for engineering in the Rocky Mountains, the Colorado School of Mines, where he is now a professor teaching chemistry and materials science. He is a consultant to NOVA and a popular speaker giving presentations as diverse as the role of science in society, to Boston's Great Molasses Disaster and other failures that have shaped engineering, science, and technology.

Energy Issues

Chemistry professor Mark Eberhart joined Art for a discussion on energy and related issues. With energy use increasing at an exponential rate and current energy (gas) costs so high, Eberhart said we should be encouraging exploration into alternative entries into the market. ... More »
