Welcome to a very important, meaningful, and delightful episode of Into the Impossible, with an impossibly brilliant guest who has inspired me since my young days as a graduate – Michael Turner! Michael Turner is a renowned theoretical cosmologist and professor of physics at the University of Chicago. He is a pioneer in exploring what he calls the dark side of the Universe. He coined the term dark energy, and his ideas led to the cold dark matter theory of structure formation. Michael’s contributions to modern physics are truly invaluable, and I am beyond thrilled to have him as a guest on my show. Join us as we explore the origins and evolution of the Universe! Key Takeaways:
