Krauss discusses the beauty of science, the universe

“The ideas of science make it so important for humans — it’s part of what makes being human worth being human, the ideas of science,” Lawrence Krauss said.

Friday, Krauss sat down with radio show host and producer Krista Tippett, as the final interview in her weeklong series based around the Week Three theme, “Krista Tippett and Friends who Inspire, Commit, Act.”

“The ideas change our perspective of our place in the cosmos, and to me, that’s what great art, music and literature is all about,” Krauss said. “When you see a play, or see a painting or hear a wonderful piece of music in some sense, it changes your perspective of yourself, and that’s what science does in a profoundly important way and in a way with content that matters.”
