Appearing during the first three hours, Astronomy & Physics Professor Lawrence M. Krauss discussed cosmology, science, and evolution and also evaluated how feasible the technology from Star Trek might be. We're just beginning to learn about the scale and geometry of the universe and how it's shaped, he said. "Dark energy" is one of the strangest aspects of the universe, as it exists in empty space, yet takes up weight, he noted.
Backing Darwin's theory of evolution, Krauss said there isn't scientific evidence for Intelligent Design, and that life likely started in an accidental fashion. He also commented that it's implausible we've been visited by ETs because of Earth's "backwater" location, and its vast distance from other star systems.
Here are some of his takes on Star Trek technology:
