Stephen Hawking's Universe: Vol. 3 Black Holes and Beyond an Answer to Everything [electronic resource]

Loading...
'Black holes and beyond' focuses on Hawking's specialty, black holes. With the invention of radio astronomy over 50 years ago many astronomical discoveries came to light including ultraluminous quasars, wormholes, black holes and singularities. It was discovered that quasars, bizarre objects billions of light years away with a power output greater than all of the stars in our galaxy put together, shine brightly as matter is sucked into a black hole and heats up due to friction. Such discoveries seem to allow for travel over millions of miles of space or even time travel and have even led to SETI--the search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence--looking for stray alien communications. 'An answer to everything" asks the question: how did the Big Bang begin? Stephen Hawking is joined by o [...]

Early Belief Systems [electronic resource]

How did people begin to understand themselves in relation to the natural world and to the unseen realms beyond, and how was religion a community experience? In this unit, animism and shamanism in Shinto are contrasted with philosophical and ethical systems in early Greece and China, and the beginnings of Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, and Judaism. Candice Goucher talks about the ways in which historians evaluate prehistoric rock art to draw hypotheses about the nature of early religion.
