The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates, Inside Science Interview Series
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Interview Series on radio and podcast. Today’s episode is part of our Inside Science series.
Our guest today is Smithsonian Associate Dr. Michael Dine.
Due very much to our guest today, Dr. Michael Dine, we know a great deal about the universe, its history, and its composition. We’ll be talking to Dr. Michael Dine today about how were we able to get to this point? Michael Dine, distinguished professor of physics, the University of California Santa Cruz, explores that question as he cautions that there are still great mysteries driving much current research in theoretical and experimental physics and astrophysics. Dr. Michael Dine, author of the new book, ‘This Way to the Universe,.’ will be presenting at Smithsonian Associates coming up and you’ll find links in our show notes today, or check out the Smithsonian Associate’s site, also linked in our show notes today.
Advancing the study of the detailed history of the universe is the mission of the recently launched James Webb Space Telescope. And while we may know much about the current makeup of the universe, 95 percent of the energy is in forms we can roughly describe but can’t precisely identify, called dark matter and dark energy. Our guest today, Dr. Michael Dine will help us understand all of this, and survey the universe, during this extraordinary moment.
That of course is our guest today, Dr. Michael Dine reading from his new book, ‘This Way to the Universe.” Please join me in welcoming to the Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Inside Science Interview Series, Dr. Michael Dine to discuss what the universe is made of.
