Lawrence Krauss is the only physicist to have received awards from all three major American physics societies. In addition to his work as a theoretical physicist and cosmologist where he has authored or co-authored more than three hundred academic articles, Krauss has devoted much of his career to getting the public of their fear of science. As Krauss explains to Bryan and Hunter, you don’t have to be a professional musician to enjoy music and you’re wrong if you think you have to be a professional physicist to enjoy the beauty of physics. With books such as The Physics of Star Trek and Fear of Physics, Krauss meets the public where they are and helps move them towards being able to enjoy science without feeling like they need a PhD. In this interview, Krauss also tackles head on why we don’t need God to explain the existence of the Universe and why he thinks we’re better off without religion.Lawrence Krauss has authored nine books for the general public. They’re available from all good booksellers and they’re as entertaining as he is.
