In a storytelling shitstorm, Dr. Thomas D. Richards takes you on a journey to the beginning of everything, to the end of it all and bounces from the mundane to the (almost) infinite. The Big Bang - a term that was originally used as a joke - is the theory of how it all began, for everyone and everything. The story of us all and every thing that matters. Yes - everything matters.
In a celebratory and silly interrogation of failure, Dr. Richards blazes through the tale of Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson, two radio astronomers that were searching for silence. They instead found the Cosmic Microwave Background, relic radiation from the beginning of the universe, proving the Big Bang theory and ruffling the feathers of a family of pigeons in one fell swoop. Subsequently awarded the Nobel Prize for their misplaced efforts. A wonderful accident.
