Josef M. Gaßner
what the universe means to me
At first glimpse, the universe reveals phenomena hostile to life. There are countless plasma-stars with incomprehensible temperatures, pulsar stars with annihilating magnetic fields and those well-known black holes which devour everything daring to be in their vicinity.

Yet, we are children of the stars. We consist of about 92 percent of chemical elements, fused in their cores. This is the fascinating enigma of the kind of finely tuned cycle of matter called the anthropic principle, a principle that is, in itself, reason enough to think of natural science outside the box.

Josef M. Gaßner, mathematician, theoretical physicist and cosmologist, will give the background story to these ideas as clearly and demonstratively as possible. Original recordings of various space-telescopes pave the way into this ninety minute lecture, followed by Q&A.
