A Harvard Astrochemist on Cosmology—And Why It Matters [Video & Audio]

If creation can reveal something of the creator, then an accurate cosmology is necessary for understanding the nature of the creator of the cosmos. However, cosmology has not been constant—or accurate—over the ages. In this clip from the Science and Religion Institute at the University of Notre Dame, Harvard astrochemist Karin Öberg, Ph.D. presents a comprehensive overview of cosmology from the medieval ages to the present.
