Roger Penrose, Japan, Tesha Mitchell discussed on The Science Show

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And sometimes we gave the impression that we've really made a lot of progress, and I'm not. So that's always true. There's one that our love metro Japan rose who's been on the sign show last year talking. About the importance of gravity is being one of the great puzzles, but also sticking his nose right up at string theory, actually well nonsense. I'm a huge fan of Roger Penrose because he says the things that other people are thinking but wearing say, and he has this incredible legacy in his work and his gravity collapse interpretation where he says will, you know, things if they're in two places at once which quantum theory says they are they're mass must be into place at once. So they're affecting space time in two different ways at once. And so maybe it's just a reaction of space time that collapses these things into one. And I think his makes sense in some ways we haven't been up to test it yet. But we're developing the technology to be able to do that. And I think Penrose is interpretation. In fact, it might not even be an interpretation it's much more of a kind of scientific hypothesis. I think that might be the one that turns out to be closer to the truth, shall we say, we'll let you have it the whole universe and everything plus the sixteenth century the astrologer by Michael Brooks. Bob. Boggling the mind in so many ways and you'll find another version of that adventure in Tesha Mitchell's marvelous science friction to pound whenever you like next week on the sign show is birdsong music that thrilling exploration by Hollis Taylor of bird, jazz an acapella work to minister stopped funding production today by David Fisher. And marked on. I'm Robin Williams..
