what do we know about this mysterious universe dan hooperAstrophysics is a branch of space science that applies the laws of physics and chemistry to explain the birth, life, and death of stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and other objects in the universe. Astrophysicists seek to understand the universe and our place in it. It has been said that the goals of astrophysics are "to discover how the universe works, explore how it began and evolved, and search for life on planets around other stars." In this compelling interview with astrophysicist Dr. Dan Hooper, we will explore some of the most difficult questions about current scientific knowledge regarding this mysterious universe.

danhooperDr. Dan Hooper is a senior scientist and the head of the Theoretical Astrophysics Group at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). He is also Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago. Dr. Hooper received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He was later a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford and the David Schramm Fellow at Fermilab. Dr. Hooper has authored more than 200 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and he has given an even larger number of technical talks at scientific conferences and university seminars and colloquia. He is also an author and has appeared on several television shows. His newest book is At the Edge of Time: Exploring the Mysteries of our Universe's First Seconds.
