Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Steve Paulson interviews Brian Swimme, mathematical cosmologist at the Center for the Story of the Universe at the California institute of Integral Studies, about the origins of the universe, and how cosmology can help us reconnect with the natural world.
Next, Anne Strainchamps interviews Thebe Medupe, astrophysicist at the University of Capetown in South Africa, about African views of astrology and creation. He produced the documentary, Cosmic Africa.
Then, Jim Fleming interviews with Jim Crace, author of The Pesthouse. The book envisions the end of time -- a post-apocalyptic America, after an un-named eco disaster destroys civilization.
After that, Anne Strainchamps interviews Ron Mallet, a theoretical physicist at the University of Connecticut, about his boyhood dream of building a time machine and rescuing his own father. Mallett also explains current research into time travel and says the ability to go back and forth in time may be closer than we think. His book is called Time Traveler: A Scientist�s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality.
And finally, Fleda Brown reads her poem, "For My Daughter�s Fortieth Birthday" which connects space and time in an entirely different way. Brown is the author of many books, including Reunion, and Breathing In, Breathing Out. Brown also served as the poet laureate of Delaware, from 2001 to 2007. [Broadcast Date: January 8, 2010]
