In this hour, Stephen Hawking is shaking the universe again with his new book, The Grand Design, which says that you can explain the existence of everything without requiring God. Steve Paulson talks with Hawking's co-author, Caltech physicist Leonard Mlodinow about how they wrote the book and what it really says, and doesn't say. Then, Charles Yu is the author of a critically acclaimed new novel, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe. Charles Yu is one of the National Book Foundation's "5 under 35" award winners. He talks about his book with Anne Strainchamps. Next, James Kakalios tracked down some astonishing (but true!) examples in his book, The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics. He told Jim Fleming that without quantum physics, we wouldn't have ipods or CD players or laptops, and that some of the early quantum physicists were inspired by science fiction. After that, John Polkinghorne is a former quantum physicist – professor of mathematical physics at Cambridge University. He's also an ordained Anglican priest, Canon Theologian at Liverpool Cathedral in England, and author of many books on the subject of bridging the gap between science and religion. And finally, Michio Kaku is the author of many books, most recently - "Physics of the Impossible: a Scientific Exploration Into the world of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation and Time Travel." Kaku and Jim Fleming have a grand time exploring levels of impossibility and why the impossible just takes longer. [Broadcast Date: October 14, 2011] 1. Language: English.

Bill Joy is one the brilliant minds in the world of computer technology who was lucky to have the opportunity to sharpen and hone his programming skills at the University of Michigan. In 1971, the University of Michigan was the only university and place in the world equipped with computers. At that time, computers were enormous mainframes which occupied a whole room, as it was during the early years and stages of computers. In addition, the University of Michigan was the only university in the world that offered advanced computer science programs. The program saw over a thousand students passing through the white room, and this included Billy Joy, a young, talented teenager from Detroit. After graduating from North Farmington High School, Bill Joy enrolled in the University of Michigan to attend the Computer Center, and in 1975 enrolled in the University of California at Berkeley. Bill Joy immersed himself deeper into the world of computer programming, including collaborating with a small team of programmers, and he took on the duty of rewriting UNIX. After graduating from the University of Berkeley, he co-founded Sun Microsystems; a company that played a critical part in the revolution of the computer. In certain circles, he is considered the E 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Hawking. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/062720/bk_acx0_062720_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
