Why the Runaway Universe Discovery Won the Nobel Prize in Physics

From EsoCast, Dr. J. explores the upheaval in our understanding of the universe brought on by the discovery that the universe is not just expanding, but is accelerating outward at an ever increasing pace. Was Einstein wrong? Are we missing something crucial in our understanding of how it all began? Either way, this is one of the most exciting scientific discoveries in a long time.

Tony Franciskato's comment, May 29, 2012 9:07 AM
I love the idea of aligning with a purpose but of course I have questions when I hear certain things like… "What does it mean to 'Transcend self interest'?" It is like thinking it necessary to "moving beyond" the need to have blood coursing through my veins. "Creating relationships where everyone is getting richer" sounds like a situation where people trade goods and services freely and exchange value for value. What a great idea! It could be like a free market where men trade without taking advantage or being taken advantage of. Seems if men understood self interest as something not needing transcendence but needing acceptance as a fact of life the rest may follow.

Thank you Tony Franciskato. I agree that these phrases are mere a positive thinking and not so a practical solution for a daily life. But we need inspiration to overcome our self-interest and I believe that this video is opening that "door".
