In his new book, "A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing," Arizona State University professor Lawrence M. Krauss explains how recent revolutions in our understanding of physics and cosmology allow modern science to address the question of why there is something rather than nothing, and more importantly, why this is a scientific question rather than a philosophical or theological one.
Origins day keynote speaker Dr. Lawrence Krauss describes the mathematically beautiful symmetries that could allow our universe to come from nothing. His new book "A Universe from Nothing" has its own origins in this eponymous lecture series. Krauss is a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, professor of Physics and director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University, is the recipient of many accolades in physics and a best-selling author known for popularizing physics, science, reason, and skepticism.
