“If the universe is ever expanding (expanding and growing as it is now), what would be ahead of or before the expanding universe, and what is the universe expanding into?” – Ahmet Gurses & Jackson Marsnas. Dr. Neil Turok Gives a wonderfully thought provoking explanation to the question asked by our curious students.
Neil is the Director of The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Dr. Turok has won numerous awards including: The Maxwell Medal, 2008 TED Prize, and Most Innovative People Award. He is best known for his work with Stephen Hawking on the Hawking-Turok Instanton. The new theory he is working on to explain the expansion of the universe is actually in direct competition with one that Dr. Hawking is working on. Game on!
Here are some interviews with students about the upcoming Power of Ideas event and the overarching theme of #whysciencematters
