In the mere span of a human lifetime, our understanding of the universe has changed completely.
Celebrated prize-winning scientist, public intellectual and accomplished speaker Professor Lawrence Krauss is one of the leading figures in this golden age of cosmology.
Currently based at the Arizona State University, he is the author of The Physics of Star Trek (1995), Quantum Man: Richard Feynman's Life in Science (2010) and, most recently, the New York Times bestseller A Universe from Nothing (2011).
Krauss speaks with Dr. Grant Christie about the big bang, the expanding universe, the rich and mysterious world of cosmology and our place on the sidelines.
Professor Krauss is in New Zealand as a Hood Fellow in association with The University of Auckland.
