Birth of a Black Hole

Posted by doctore0 on November 29, 2012

Ok some science!

It was one of the greatest mysteries in modern science: a series of brief but extremely bright flashes of ultra-high energy light coming from somewhere out in space. These gamma ray bursts were first spotted by spy satellites in the 1960s. It took three decades and a revolution in high-energy astronomy for scientists to figure out what they were…..

Sex, Death And The Meaning Of Life Episode 3 Richard Dawkins

Posted by doctore0 on October 30, 2012

Why does an atheist bother to get up in the morning?
That’s the question Richard Dawkins seeks to answer as he continues his exploration of the big questions of life in a world shaking off religious faith.

In a journey that takes him from the casinos of Las Vegas to Buddhist monasteries in the foothills of the Himalayas, Richard Dawkins examines how both religious and non-religious people struggle to find meaning in their lives.

He looks at how our existence is ruled by chance, meeting people whose fate was to be born into extreme poverty in India’s slums and the survivors of a natural disaster in Joplin, Missouri, a city ripped apart in 2011 by a tornado on a random course.

In the face of what appears to be a blindly indifferent universe, Dawkins argues that we each have to forge our own sense of meaning.

He meets the comedian Ricky Gervais, an atheist since the age of seven, for whom meaning comes through doing something creative.

For Dawkins, it is the awe and wonder in scientific enquiry – from the human genome to the quest for the Higgs Boson – that get him up in the morning.
