Could There Be a Crisis in Physics?
Scientists found the Higgs Boson, but what’s next? Will we ever get a handle on dark energy? Physicist and director of the Origins Project Lawrence Krauss and Nobel laureates Frank Wilczek and Brian Schmidt discuss current cosmic challenges and the next big questions in fundamental physics.
Lawrence Krauss is director and foundation professor at The ASU Origins Project at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. His latest book is The Greatest Story Ever Told–So Far. Why Are We Here? (Atria Books, 2017).
Frank Wilczek is a 2004 Nobel Laureate in Physics and author of Fundamentals: Ten Keys to Reality (Penguin Press, 2021). He’s also the Herman Feshbach Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge Massachusetts.
Brian Schmidt is the 2011 Nobel Laureate in Physics and a professor at Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.
