Dr. Schaefer: Live Blogging Part One
After a bad intro on my part, Dr. Schaefer began his talk.
Dr. Schaefer made a great joke about being the only Michigan fan in the room.
He began by talking about Worldview: Each individual has her own experiences and out of them forms their own worldviews.
The Field of Cosmology: Is the universe eternal or have a begining? Is the Universe created? If not, why are we here? Who or what governs the constant laws of physics?
The fact of the begining of the universe and that it had a begining has been opposed philosophically, not scientificaly. He talked about Einstein’s desire to find an eternal constant, but couldn’t.
