Sabine Hossenfelder

The Other Side of Physics

For some physics is all about helping us nail down how the natural world works. And of course this is a hugely valuable and important effort. In Sabine’s talk, however, she wants to discuss how physics is a catalyst and inspiration for deeper discussion on some of the big, and often unanswerable, questions in life. For example, does a ‘multiverse’ really exist? Can the Universe think? As part of her talk she wants to distinguish between the ‘unscientific’ and the ‘ascientific’ to help us understand the difference between bad science v important questions that science simply cannot answer, at least not yet.
