-- assist pump -- interest and -- -- sentence -- what did you realize.
That you are a lot smarter of a -- don't like about nothing and -- or whatever and you.
And you were thinking about a -- I begin there -- an educator now as well and doing research and -- begin to realize that.
Were all born scientists all of us all of us wonder where the stars come from came from where we came from.
And then we want to -- about these things until we hit high school.
And then it's crushed out of us peer pressure kicks in hormones kick and yet to memorize all the parts of a flower and all the boring things that are totally irrelevant.
And then it's crushed out service and so now President Obama talks about the sputnik moment.
We have to re create a sputnik moment for high school kids so they don't drop -- like flies in high school.
-- -- -- -- -- -- cocker is -- hazard which is very accessible bottom line.
Mean I could read it.
Shall not serve in future.
My intellectual level you're probably went above average here.
But it but it is accessible probably physics of the fruits and into the there's no problem -- there's there's there's a sense some absolutely and -- -- so.
And also sort of some of the things like -- -- -- Well let me just give you elect a taste of some of the hundreds of predictions I make in the -- -- -- travel -- from a forward -- this is this on -- job from.
-- and in the world are optional -- by another.
No I think we're gonna be around on the 22 don't sell the store don't get divorced don't quit your day job -- you may -- -- to see the 22 you know.
Are you gonna -- Yeah I make hundreds of predictions in the book based on interviews I've done with 300 scientists for example the Internet people always want -- -- the future of the Internet.
It's gonna be in our contact -- in ten to fifteen years so you'll blink.
And you'll get online -- contact lens -- americanized people's faces and print out their biography right next to the image.
So -- cocktail parties you'll always know exactly who to suck up to add any -- Friday.
And -- buy these contact lens of a college student studying for final examinations.
They will blink and -- see all the answers to the final examination in their contact Lance are popular but I'm -- Time trouble we think is possible Stephen Hawking has actually gone back and forth back and for -- several times in this question.
But she need an enormous amount of energy to drive a hole through space and time time is a river we think it speeds up and it slows down.
But we also think now -- time can have world -- and if you get caught up one of the world pools of time you can actually go back and meet your parents before you're born.
And if your teenage mother falls in love with you you're in deep do do we're.
Senator curry zeroes in on -- But every time travel certain things now right frame our astronauts actually go into the future a little bit it turns out that a RSS or time travelers.
Time -- at different rates in outer space the moon tide beats faster on the moon than it does on the earth we can measure that.
Time be slower on Jupiter that it does on the -- And our GPS systems your cellphone turn pass to take this into account when it communicates with satellites -- -- -- to GPS wouldn't work.
Stephen -- an analyst on on.
EO Stephen Hawking made headlines a few months ago and again last week when he says that god is a necessary.
There's no heaven there's -- -- hell.
In his book he said that string theory which is what I do for a living.
Is it this is the final theory this is the theory of everything.
Therefore he said we don't need god.
We have a theory that goes takes us before the big bank he said we have a multi -- Thierry.
Our universe is a soap bubble but there are other soap bubbles out there -- other universe -- and they bump into each other and that's the Big -- So we don't need god he said no I think that's going to -- -- are now because you know I reckon that there Ito.
And it seems to me that it doesn't answer the question well where did these bubbles come from where did string theory come from where did the multi humorous come from.
So I think we still have do you know appealed to -- -- here authorities.
That's -- big question well waited all this come from where the mathematics come from arguments in the fundamentals of the Baptist so it's a privilege of their.
The parallel universal's I've.
It's a real -- Yeah we think this is steady parallel universe is -- fact that we're creating article quantum computers which I see compute in different parallel universe is.
And it it raises a question and that is those Elvis Presley still alive in another universe.
And he cannot be ruled out it can't be ruled out that does the king is alive in -- of the universe -- just there.
Well that's the problem you need enormous amounts of energy far beyond anything that we can Muster to go between university is -- call worm holes no.
Think of the looking glass of Alice the looking glass of Alice is a typical worm -- that connects wonderland.
With the countryside of Oxford.
And you can also use worm holes this time machines to go backwards in time but the energy necessary to open up -- gateway in -- is.
For our great great great big -- -- kids.
So one day if somebody knocks on your door and claims to be a great great great -- it granddaughter.
Don't slam the door and -- -- JH now I teach physics at the City University of New York.
And stuff like to have front you guys I used to teach -- a graduate program he's now he's got distance however this semester I'm teaching astronomy to freshman.
And it's quite a challenge for what he read from memory you know both.
Or Arafat saying gas down.
Well thank you very and I semi wire from -- so prevention dollars of while thank you very much for coming in operation academy or cocker as -- of -- of those fears -- --
