"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust" Lawrence Krauss
Professor of Earth and Space Exploration, Lawrence Krauss, isn't immune to small irritations of daily living. However, he can see the bigger picture. In this 'secular sermon' he shows how each of us is connected to the cosmos in ways we'd never imagine. From the stardust we're made of, to the atoms we breathe, to the curving of space time that governs the way we make our way through traffic jams, to time travel itself.
Dr Lawrence Krauss is a prolific and popular writer and an indefatigable fighter for science and critical thinking. At Arizona State University, he is Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Physics Departments, Associate Director of the Beyond Center, and Co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative. He is also Director of the exciting new Origins Initiative, which explores questions ranging from the origin of the Universe to the origins of human culture and cognition. He has studied and explained matters from the microscopic to astronomical. In performing with the Cleveland Orchestra, judging at the Sundance Film Festival, and his Grammy nominated notes for Telarc Records, Krauss has also bridged the chasm between science and popular culture.
Singer died after taking a cocktail of anti-depressant drugs

The corporate media tells us it will be "six to eight weeks" before we know for sure how Whitney Houston died . By then they hope nobody will be paying attention, because it's already been reported that the singer was killed by a cocktail of pharmaceutical drugs.
The 48-year-old performer was found dead in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday.
"An autopsy was completed on Houston Sunday, but "there will be no cause of death at this time because it is pending toxicology reports," Ed Winter, assistant chief of the Los Angeles County Coroner's office, told CNN.
"Winter declined to release the coroner's initial finding of cause of death, saying lab results were expected in six to eight weeks."
However, TMZ reports that Houstton's family has already been told by L.A. County Coroner officials that "the singer did not die from drowning, but rather from what appears to be a combination of Xanax and other prescription drugs mixed with alcohol."
No illegal drugs were found in Houston's hotel room "but prescription drugs were present," including "various pill bottles". Despite talk of alcohol playing a role in her death, "There was no evidence that Whitney was drinking alcohol in the room."
Houston had "a plethora of sedatives including Lorazepam, Valium, Xanax, and a sleeping medication that was found in her hotel room," reports Radar Online.
Mainstream news networks have largely avoided discussion of multiple reports of pharmaceutical drugs being the cause of Houston's death because the establishment is keen to hide the fact that pharmaceutical drugs, particularly psychotropic anti-depressants, kill more people than illegal substances by a factor of 300 per cent.
"Prescription drugs kill over 200,000 Americans every year — even when taken as directed and not abused!," notes Mike Adams. In comparison, there is no documented case of marijuana ever killing anyone, despite the fact that it is illegal in America.
"Whitney Houston is just one of countless Americans who are victims of Big Pharma, an industry that cares far more about corporate profits than it does about the lives of real people. And today, we have lost yet another iconic American artist whose life was cut short by addiction, prescription drugs and the entire "medication culture" that exists in America today," writes Adams, pointing out that Houston's erratic behavior before her death clearly indicated she was suffering from the side-effects of psychiatric drugs, including Xanax, which is known to cause odd behavior and suicidal thoughts.
With the two industries tied at the hip, don't expect the corporate media to do much to impugn its relationship with the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical boondoggle by reporting the truth about Houston's cause of death.
Big Pharma spends more money on promotion and advertising than it does on research and development, a huge chunk of which goes to the big news networks, so don't think for a second the likes of CNN, NBC and CBS will be too eager to make the connection between Houston's intake of pharmaceutical drugs and her untimely demise.
