Back from Cambridge
With Tina Košir and professor Alan Macfarlane we made an interview with Neil Turok who is a world renown physician and coauthor of a popular science book “Endless Universe“. I had only few minutes to make a portrait.
He is coathor of alternative explanation of the beginning of universe, stating (by my understanding) that dark matter does not exist and that what is believed to be dark force is just a gravity from different dimension (M-theory). He is close college of Stephen Hawking and if his theory is proven valid, he might be just as famous.
I’m really a fan of popular science and quantum physics. Anyhow this is a small step that really inspired me and I might develop the story on Neil Turok that will lead me to South Africa. We’ll see.
Otherwise I’m really amazed by Cambridge. This is dinning room in King’s College I was surprised by the whole system. How everybody is really working focused. I mean they work hard, but the whole system is fantastically in tuned. From professors, students to the administration. In every step you can feel that this students are chosen and are treated appropriate. Lectures are interesting and looks more like a debate then a professors monologue. In the colleges you can see on every step pictures of Nobel prize winners that used to study here and even I felt that every student could be next Nobel prize winner. By the way. Only Trinity college has more Nobel prize winners than whole France together!
Cambridge is history and since we were guest of fellow Alan Macfarlane we had in depth tour of Cambridge.
This is a room where radio cosmology started by discovering Pulsar stars. Professor Macfarlane is showing Professor Neil Turok a wire by which signal from space arrived for the first time.
