Listen

HR 2

Guest: Dave Goldberg

Why is the sky dark at night? Are there other temporal references in addition to “the past,” “the present,” and “the future?” And how is a butterfly’s wings a popular explanation of time and space? Drexel University physicist DAVE GOLDBERG comes in to explain the randomness and hidden symmetries in our everyday lives. Host Jeff Brady talks to Goldberg about his recent book, “The Universe in the Rearview Mirror: How Hidden Symmetries Shape Reality.”
