Little Journeys into the Universe by Hubert Reeves

From where he came the world ?

Where does that come from?There is world ? What is it made of? What are its laws? How does it work? What will happen to him? We are children of the earth and humans, what do we do here?

These questions tirelessly pose to us, particularly the question of the origin of the world that feeds our thirst most: there is clearly something very profound at stake here. Because there is a truth proven by anthropologists: almost all human societies, large or small, strong or weak, lost on a rocky island or in a barren desert, have proposed a “history of the world.” The diversity and richness of the stories they bring from the four corners of the planet is impressive (yes, you can be spherical and have four corners…). Sometimes it seems that other kinds of stories, metaphysical or religious, are able to quench our thirst to uncover the origin. We judge them to be credible, adequate, almost final, but very quickly, the same questions arise again, irrepressible: they move, change the terrain, and sometimes blur, allowing us to understand that they relate to a strange reality beyond what is our immediate reality. Knowledge is accessible. Then there are also the physicists who speak to us with confidence the great explosionwhile running after the real meaning that should be given to those two short words – big and explosion – which, in the middle of nowhere, would have set fire to the powder while adding fuel to the fire, like a drop of water would have broken the camel's back, except that in this case it was the vase Completely empty, and what's more, there wasn't even a vase.

Guest: Hubert Reeves, who sponsors the new collection “Voyage dans le cosmos” proposed by Le Monde newspaper.

What I'm most interested in is knowing if there is life elsewhere.

More and more banks are refusing to lend money to coal and oil exploration projects. It is a movement that is spreading very quickly and can have a very important role. It must be said that it is good for troop morale! If we give up, it's over.

The key today is keeping the planet habitable and enjoyable. This is what is fundamentally threatened, because we are so powerful. Humans have become so powerful that they threaten themselves.
