Negative space, dark energy, missing matter, how to get something from nothing. My Skype interview & essay for Numéro Cinq with the fabulous physicist/cosmologist/public intellectual/movie actor Lawrence M. Krauss, PhD, has just been published.
“If you search the library shelves for A Guide for the Perplexed, you will find three books: one by Maimonides, the Sephardic astronomer, scholar and philosopher; one by Werner Herzog, the German filmmaker; and one by Krauss. The universe is filled with unexpected connections. I am a perplexed filmmaker who turns to astrology in moments of desperation. Lawrence Krauss, Phd, cosmologist, is also now an actor in a Werner Herzog film.”
