Geoff Marcy: The Search for Exoplanets and Life Elsewhere in the Universe Geoff Marcy has been pioneer in the search for extra-solar system planets since the first discovery of an exoplanet surround a main sequence star was made in 1995 by Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz. Within months, Marcy and his team had not only confirmed this result but detected numerous other exoplanets. Seventy of the first one hundred exoplanets were discovered by Marcy’s team, including the firs exoplanet located as far away from its star as Jupiter is to the Sun, and the first exoplanet discovered by observing its transit of its host star, a technique that will be used by JWST to explore the atmosphere of exoplanets to search for bio signatures. Marcy was then a Co-PI on the Kepler Mission, which discovered over 4000 exoplanets. For their pioneering work in the creation of this new field Marcy and Mayor shared the international Shaw Prize in 2005. More recently Marcy has turned his attention to methods to probe for intelligent life in the Universe, first as a PI on the Breakthrough Listen Project, and more recently exploring novel methods, including optical techniques to probe for possible signals of intelligence elsewhere. We discussed all of these exciting topics, as well as Geoff’s own origins as a scientist in a thoughtful and fascinating discussion. He has become well known not just as a world renown scientist, but as one of the best communicators of astronomy there is. Our discussion will give a whole new dimension to your thinking about that age-old question: Are we alone in the Universe?As always, an ad-free video version of this podcast is also available to paid Critical Mass subscribers .

Andy Knoll: The First Four Billion Years of Life on Earth Andy Knoll is a Renaissance Scientist. He is a geologist, paleobiologist, and geochemist and has applied key ideas from chemistry, biology, physiology and more to understanding the key developments associated with life on Earth—both how geology and chemistry have impacted on life, and vice versa. He has made ground breaking contributions to the understanding of almost every phase of life, from early Pre-Cambrian single cell life, to the emergence of more complex lifeforms, to mass extinctions. His group was the first to demonstrate that the rapid rise of CO2 was probably responsible for the last great extinction on Earth, a subject of some relevance today. For his work he most recently won the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences Crafoord Prize in Geosciences… the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in that field.But more than all of this, Andy is a wonderful teacher and human being, and a great communicator . He has written numerous books on the history of life on Earth, and we discussed his most recent book, “A Brief History of Earth: Four Billion Years in Eight Chapters” in this podcast, along with his own origins and evolution as a scientist. The discussion was so fascinating that we went overtime during our first session and had to continue the next day. Our discussion will forever change your perspective on our planet, and our place within it.

Dr. Julia Gonski: Season 2 Episode 11 "I am a high energy experimental physicist, searching for new fundamental particles using the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. My work is split between data analysis, where I focus on the application of novel machine learning methods such as anomaly detection to enhance our discovery potential, and detector development, namely upgrading the readout electronics for the liquid argon calorimeter of the ATLAS experiment. This variety means that in a single work day I can go from working hands-on with engineers on a printed circuit board setup, to testing training algorithm configurations, and end with a hundred-person meeting, and I am always energized by the fast pace gear shifts! This Snowmass process will bring together experts across these disparate activities and prepare recommendations on the future course of the field, and my role is to facilitate the participation of early career physicists in the conversation. Outside of physics, I enjoy mixed martial arts, skiing, and struggling to learn French."

Charles Murray: On Human Diversity After writing the book, The Bell Curve, Charles Murray became a controversial figure in the US Social Science scene, and was much maligned in the public arena. His work has been misinterpreted as being racist and sexist, and at Middlebury College students forcibly stopped his guest lecture and rioted. As often the case with stereotypes, Murray is instead a thoughtful scholar who has tried to base his social science research on data from empirical science, something that should be standard, but isn’t. I wanted to discuss his most recent book, Human Diversity, with him. It is far from controversial, and instead is a clear effort to explain often complex genetic concepts in a popular format. He makes it clear that he focuses on only well understood and well accepted concepts, and the discussion we had was instructive and enjoyable. He is a delightful and thoughtful individual and I believe that comes out in our dialogue. I know from experience, as I indicated at the beginning of our discussion, that many people will condemn the discussion without listening to it, just as they condemn his writing without reading it. But if you take the time, I think you will be pleasantly surprised, as well as learning some new things about the world. One of the purposes of The Origins Podcast is to connect science and culture, and Murray connects hard science with social science issues in a refreshingly honest and detailed way. Indeed, if all social scientists and policy makers took his approach, the overall tenor of popular discussion would improve, I believe. And while Murray and I do not share political views on a number of issues, thoughtful discussion is far preferred to blanket cancellation and denunciation or a refusal to even engage. Again, that, I hope, is a hallmark of the podcast. I hope you enjoy the discussion as much as I did. Get full access to Critical Mass at lawrencekrauss.substack.com/subscribe
Prof. Tao Han (he/him/his): Season 2 Episode 9 Season 2 Episode 9
I am a theoretical particle physicist, specializing in collider phenomenology, a theoretical branch that builds the bridge between theory and experimental observations. To explore new physics beyond the Standard Model, I formulate theoretical models and predict observables at colliders as well as at low energy experiments. The topics I have been interested in include Higgs boson physics, searching for dark matter, examining neutrino mass generation models. I closely collaborate with my colleagues in theory and experiments. Since 2019, I have been involved in organizing the community planning exercise, a.k.a. "Snowmass 2021", led by APS DPF. The particle physics community comes together to identify fundamental questions in the field and the opportunities to address. The Snowmass exercise is very important for our field in the next decay and beyond. The final community meeting will take place in July 17-26, 2022, at the University of Washington-Seattle.

Phase 2 Prototypes In this episode, we explore our next prototype design and review some of the scientific parameters associated with the prototypes. We also propose a challenging thought experiment."Welcome back to Jets in Space!Prototypes will be the lifeblood of this concept as we need to show thrust production in larger-scale models.Phase 2 prototype currently under construction involves a ducted greenhouse fan (see our YouTube video). We might attach a ventilation duct to narrow the aperture of gas escape. We will use transparent plastic tarps spread over a metal wire frame to make the next-level airtight container. Hopefully, this will keep weight to a minimum."Click here for the full transcription.Podcast Production Services by: NCC Audio
Sub Orbital IAP In this episode, we discuss the possible use of IAP to help craft achieve escape velocity and earth orbits.Welcome 🙏🏻 back to Jets in Space!Today we are going to explore the concept of orbits, escape velocities and possible correlation with IAP.I looked up escape velocity on the internet and read that to escape the power of earth’s gravity, we have to accelerate the vehicle to 7 miles per second!!! Which translates to approximately 25,000.00 miles per hour. When I read this, I was at first hesitant to bring up IAP as a means to achieve escape velocity, however, it also inspired another thought experiment...To read the full transcription and to learn more about IAP please visit the show page here: https://belenaerospace.com/sub-orbital-iap/Podcast Production Services by EveryWord Media

49 - When the Universe Changed in an Instant Just like water changing to ice when it freezes, there were times in the universe's early history when reality changed in almost an instant. Today we dive into these cosmological phase transitions, and speculate about the strange objects these types of instant changes can create.

Episode 66: The Limit of General Relativity with James Owen Weatherall Jim talks with James Owen Weatherall about his work on viewing general relativity as an effective field theory and where it should give way to another theory. General relativity does a very good job of describing the world we see in astronomical observations, but certain results, e.g. singularities, and certain limits, e.g. the Planck scale, hint that there should be another theory that supersedes it. Jim Weatherall argues that this is in a high curvature regime.Show Notes: http://frontiers.physicsfm.com/66

Prof. Meenakshi Narain (She/Her): Season 2 Episode 7 Season 2 Episode 7
I am an Asian-Indian American Physicist, who traveled from Gorakhpur, UP, India and finally settled in Providence, RI USA, with my German husband and two sons. I am passionate about cooking and organizing events which meld scientific concepts with arts and music. My research focuses on investigating the early universe moments after the Big Bang created in small and large particle colliders, by building innovative scientific instruments (detectors) to explore and find fundamental particles and their interactions, and through these experiments unravel mysteries such as the origin of matter, the types of matter in the universe and many more. I love my research, as it gives me a purpose, and gives me an opportunity to forge an inclusive partnership with a diverse set of researchers who help me connect with the age-old quest of humankind to understand where we come from, why we are here, and eventually visualize the building blocks of our home, the universe! I am humbled to have been chosen as one of the leaders of the Energy Frontier group of the broader Snowmass study to help formulate a community wide vision to explore the TeV energy scale and beyond with future collider options, which will define the landscape of experimental opportunities over multiple decades [and late into this century].

Terraforming the Martian Atmosphere Terraforming mars has been a topic on science fiction for decades, but it is actually possible. There are still many problems associated with it and one of the biggest issues of transforming the Martian atmosphere is heavily based in physics. I don’t hear this mentioned very much, but that’s what we talk about this week.

Prof. Laura Baudis (She/her): Season 2 Episode 6 Season 2 Episode 6
I am a Romanian-born German-Swiss astroparticle physicist and I also enjoy reading poetry, hiking and kayaking on Swiss lakes. My research is focused on the direct detection of particle dark matter with xenon time projection chambers and on the search for neutrinoless double beta decay with enriched germanium crystals operated in liquid argon. I love the fact that these rare-event searches pose formidable challenges to our detector technologies, requiring new detector prototypes that we must develop and test in the lab. I also enjoy working with many enthusiastic researches in our international experimental collaborations. To me Snowmass is a very important grass-roots process in particle and astroparticle physics, not only relevant for USA, but with international relevance and implications. I am also excited to be one of the conveners for the Underground Facilities Frontier.

(Audio) John Mather: From the Big Bang to Searching for Life John Mather is an astrophysicist at NASA who has been involved in important space missions to probe our fundamental understanding of the Universe for over four decades. He helped lead the design and deployment of the Cosmic Background Explorer Satellite (COBE), which launched in 1989 to probe the cosmic microwave background radiation from the Big Bang with a precision that could not be obtained from terrestrial experiments because of absorption of radiation by the atmosphere. The experiments on COBE, and its successor missions WMAP and PLANCK, literally have turned cosmology from an art to a science, allowing the precise measurement of cosmological observables that previously were either not measured at all or only measured to within a factor of two. This has led to a golden age of cosmology, where theories of the early universe can now be compared directly to observation. John directed the building of the Far Infrared Absolute Spectrophotometer (FIRAS) on COBE which was able to show that the cosmic microwave background radiation was indeed an almost perfect ‘black body’ spectrum associated with a very well defined temperature of the Universe at a time of about 300,000 years after the big bang. Indeed, no terrestrial experiment has ever produced such an accurate black body spectrum, which was one of the fundamental predictions that helped develop quantum mechanics early in the 20th century. For his work on COBE, John shared the Nobel Prize with George Smoot. But John didn’t rest on his laurels, for several decades after COBE John helped lead the design and development of the James Webb Space Telescope, which recently launched and will probe both the very early universe and also extra solar planets, possibly helping us discover evidence for life elsewhere in the Universe. John and I talked about his origins in science, the science he has accomplished, and what his future plans are in a discussion that will help provide a valuable perspective for anyone on the current status of cosmology and astrophysics, as well as what we might learn in the future.

Jonathan Rauch: Free Thought, Democracy, and the Nature of Science Jonathan Rauch was 30 years ahead of the curve. In his book Kindly Inquisitors, written in 1993, he described the very mechanisms by which ideology can undermine both the search for truth, and the democratic ideal of free thought—mechanisms which have now become endemic in our society. But more than that, in that book, and in The Constitution of Knowledge, written in 2021 he lays out more clearly than anyone I have ever read, the philosophical and sociological basis of science. The search for truth, and the proper functioning of democratic government both require the same social contract: the implicit acceptance that all ideas are subject to open attack, but that ultimately when the community as a whole has access to open debate and discussion, to the logical attacks and counter-attacks, social consensus can emerge about which ideas remain productive, and which are consigned to the dustbin of history. Science is therefore a social activity every bit as much as governance is. This does not mean that science is a social construct however. It is precisely the need for open debate, without no constraints on whose claims have merit based on authority, gender, race, or religion, that ensures that the search for truth moves in the right direction. It was a delight and revelation for me to learn, belatedly, about Jonathan’s writing, and to have a chance to discuss some of his ideas in depth in this podcast. He is a gentle, eloquent, and thoughtful soul, and I hope you find the discussion with him as enlightening as I did. Get full access to Critical Mass at lawrencekrauss.substack.com/subscribe
Origins Podcast with Michael Shellenberger: From Apocalypse Never to Running for Governor I was very happy to have the chance to speak to Michael Shellenberger some time ago, after his book Apocalypse Never appeared. Having written my book, The Physics of Climate Change, I was intrigued by his take on the fact that climate change is not an existential threat. Once I read his book, I realized we agreed on many things, with perhaps the differences being on emphasize rather than substance. Nevertheless, we did have some disagreements, and we had a very spirited, and I hope respectful, discussion about climate change and its implications, but also on the other issues that need to be addressed and which climate change activists may be exacerbating because of their unique focus on this issue. The need to address important infrastructure issues in Africa and elsewhere in order to bring people up from poverty and also to help insulate them, or at least allow them to adapt to climate change is of great importance. Also, one of his central issues, the need for Nuclear Power, is an important issue, and I agree completely with Michael that we should not be closing down nuclear power plants, nor interfering with the construction of new plants. I don’t see Nuclear Power alone as a panacea, however. While perhaps largely due to the current burden of regulation, nuclear power plants are expensive and time consuming to build, and I think that they are just one component of what needs to be a many-pronged effort to address climate change and other global challenges. Michael is incredibly passionate about his view of the crucial pressing challenges we face, and any categorization of him as liberal, conservative, libertarian, or climate denier, is false. He is a thoughtful humanist, and I found the discussion with him to be enlightening, as well as provocative, and I learned a lot in the process. That is the best kind of discussion, after all. After doing 2.5 hours together a year or so we sat together again (on zoom) for another discussion in the midst of his current run for California Governor. This gave us a chance to reconnect, and also talk about a different, new set of issues more relevant to that race, and to current problems facing the country. I hope you enjoy this two pronged episode. If you want to watch the episode Ad-Free, please purchase a paid subscription to Critical Mass.

Alan Guth: Inflation of The Universe & More In 1979 Alan Guth, then a postdoc at Cornell, made what is perhaps the most important contribution to our theoretical understanding of the evolution of the Universe in the past half century. His realization that the early universe could have undergone a brief period of what he dubbed as “Inflation” provided the first and to date the only explanation of the large scale properties of the Universe compatible with observations, and based on well-defined, calculable, microphysical physics principles. Since that time, Inflation has become the paradigm of modern cosmology, and it made fundamental predictions about other observables in cosmology that have since been validated by observations of the Cosmo Microwave Background Radiation. I was particularly happy to have Alan on the podcast for a variety of reasons. First and foremost he is a remarkably clear and precise expositor of science. Second, his own history in the field provides, I think, a good object lesson for young scientists who might be struggling. Third, it was important that he provide a counterpoint to the discussion I previously had with Roger Penrose, who has presented his own alternative to Inflation that is much less well-defined at this time. Finally, Alan is a lovely human being, and both a friend, and in some sense a mentor to me (having served on my thesis examination committee when he first came to MIT, and having been a colleague and co-author with me on scientific papers). I hope you enjoy what I found to be a very enlightening discussion about science, and a revealing window into the thoughts of one of the most important cosmologists currently alive today.

The physics behind climate change We’ve heard from scientists that CO2 is a greenhouse gas that is causing average global temperatures to rise, but that’s it. Few people know why that is the case and even fewer know the physics behind this phenomenon, which is surprisingly simple. Here we go through why climate change is just logical physics.

Prof. Alexey A Petrov (he/his): Season 2 Episode 2 Season 2 Episode 2
I am a particle physicist at Wayne State University. I also like art. My research is on application of effective field theories to particle physics phenomenology. I love my research because I get to understand why the Universe is the way it is.
Snowmass is an important exercise that will shape the vision for the future of particle physics in the US.
My Journey as a Physicist is brought to you by PhD student Bryan Stanley (he/him/his) and Prof. Huey-Wen Lin (she/her). Season 2 is edited by Varalee Sakorikar.
Season 2 consists of members of the Particle Physics Community Planning Exercise known as Snowmass.

Prof. Gordon Watts (he/him): Season 2 Episode 1 Season 2 Episode 1
I am an experimental particle physicist, and when I'm not doing that I'm trying to teach myself to take pictures and cook. My research is focused on searching for Hidden Sector extensions to the Standard Model, mostly by looking for evidence of long-lived massive particles. I love the opportunity that physics gives me to explore the internal workings of the world around me. I also have really enjoyed working on the computing aspects of the field - bringing more modern tools into our searches for new physics.

Snowmass is a ~decadal study of the state of particle physics in the USA: the challenges it faces, and the direction its R&D should take. It is a wonderfully grass-roots effort organized by the DPF whose goal is to find some consensus amongst the 1000's of US physicists for particle physics' next 10 years.

Dr. Petra Merkel (she/her): Season 2 Episode 3 Season 2 Episode 3

I am an experimental collider physicist, who specializes on detector instrumentation, and I also love traveling, reading, movies, jigsaw puzzles, listening to live music and learning to play the piano. In the past I have been involved in the Higgs boson discovery, but now I specialize on designing and building silicon trackers and on coordinating generic detector R&D for the High Energy Physics community. I love my research, because it requires a lot of creativity, allows me to learn something new every day, and leads me to work with a very diverse group of people, who are all extremely good at what they are doing. Snowmass turned out to be a lot of work at a very challenging time during the pandemic, but I feel it is important to help define and shape the future of our field using my expertise in detector instrumentation.
