Last Show Recap

Cosmology & Quantum Theory

Professor of creative writing at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Marjorie Sandor, will talk about her latest work compiling stories from the deeply unsettling to the possibly supernatural and why we love tales that delve into our increasingly unstable sense of self, home, and planet. In the first hour, bestselling author and global authority on the economic and political impact of life sciences, Juan Enriquez, will discuss how man is now the primary driver of change and how we will directly and indirectly determine what lives and what dies as well as where and when.

Cosmology & Quantum Theory

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - June 8, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Marcus Chown, Alex Jones

Author and consultant to New Scientist magazine, Marcus Chown spoke about cosmology, quantum theory and parallel universes. Quantum theory, which is the study of how very small objects behave, has yielded some intriguing data. For instance, he noted, that an atom can be in two places at once-- the equivalent of a person being in New York and San Francisco at the same time. He also shared that because 99.999% of atoms are actually empty space, you could fit the entire human race into the volume of a sugar cube.

There is still evidence of the "afterglow" of the Big Bang; if our eyes were sensitive to microwaves we'd see the whole night sky glowing, he noted. Interestingly, 98% of the universe is invisible--most of it is "dark matter" which can be surmised by the fact that it is pulling on the visible matter. In addition, Chown pointed out that in 1998 "dark energy" was deduced, and this mysterious property (it pushes mass away from it) accounts for 73% of the universe's weight.

Chown said he feels "incredibly privileged to be alive" right now because of the discoveries that are being made about the universe and its origins. Our universe may be a four-dimensional brane floating in a ten-dimensional universe, and the Big Bang could have occurred when two branes collided, he offered.

Jones Detainment

First hour guest Alex Jones reported on being detained at the Ottawa airport en route to the Bilderberg conference (a secretive meeting of the world's elite). "It was one of the worst experiences of my life," being interrogated by customs agents for 15 hours, he said. Eventually, they admitted to him that someone from the Bilderbergers had ordered Jones to be detained, he revealed. Read more coverage of the incident at prisonplanet.com.
