Steven Weinberg (born May 3, 1933) is an American theoretical physicist and Nobel Laureate in Physics for his contributions with Abdus Salam and Sheldon Glashow to the unification of the weak force and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles.
Pakistans only Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam was born in Santok Das, District Sahiwal, on January 29, 1926 a little over 85 years ago. He shared the 1979 physics Nobel Prize with Steven Weinberg and Sheldon Glashow for the historic unification of the weak nuclear force with the electromagnetic force.…

CONSCIOUSNESS: THE BEGINNING & THE END April 21, 2014 - Nothing is more certain than the fact that we are conscious. And yet there is something very puzzling, even uncanny, about being conscious; and the learned talk of the mystery of consciousness. The mystery centres around the origin of consciousness; the prevailing scientific view is that consciousness is a property that emerges from complex brains. The problem is that we haven’t the foggiest idea of how the stuff of our minds could conceivably come forth from anything physical. Bits of electrified meat don’t easily translate into episodes of consciousness – we have it, we know it, in some sense we are it – but what it is and where it came from escapes us. There is also a mystery about the future of consciousness – I mean for each one of us there is the mystery of what comes after death. There’s no easy answer to the ‘after’ question, but I will offer my opinion, based on my own experience and research. We might begin by saying that th ...

As of tomorrow, it will be 12 years, 8 months and 5 days since that beautiful September day turned into a dark day with death and destruction with unimaginable pain and suffering. However it also showed us how ordinary people helped ordinary people. On the eve of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum dedication ceremony, I would like to take a moment to thank EVERYONE who has worked so hard since September 12th,, 2001. With all this hard work and dedication we will have a museum that has a mission to honor and remember the 2977 innocent people who were murdered that beautiful September day and the 6 who were murdered on February 26, 1993. I know that all of the stakeholders had an opinion of what should be done and how it should be done. I know in my heart of hearts that the museum will be respectful to the 2983 people murdered on this site and their families. My wife Cynthia Branco and I are honored to be included in the dedication ceremony tomorrow morning. While we have been in the museum se ...
Life possible in the early Universe Planets orbiting the first stars could have been habitable, challenging arguments for a multiverse. Zeeya Merali 10 December 2013 Life on other planets could have been warmed by the afterglow of the Big Bang. Aliens might have existed during the Universe’s infancy.

Milky Way map excludes region of gravitational-wave findings Imaging tumour cells inside the body Russian islands have unusually deadly avalanches Abraham Loeb, an astrophysicist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has realized that in the early Universe, the energy required to keep water liquid could have come from the cosmic microwave background, the afterglow of the Big Bang, rather than from host stars.

oh It's a good stuff! "One finds many in the secular community constantly equating the word science with macroevolution, or large change. This has led to gross misunderstanding of those who are trying to fathom the origins issue. If macroevolution and science are used synonymously, then of course creation science would be “anti-science.”Let’s address this issue by first defining our terms. Although many definitions have appeared, science can be described as what we really know to be true mainly through observation. The late G. G. Simpson of Harvard stated in Sciencemagazine that “it is inherent in any definition of science that statements that cannot be checked by observation are not really about anything . . . or at the very least, they are not science.”But the origins debate centers around macroevolution, and macroevolution hasnever been observed. One of the architects of neo-Darwinism agrees: “It is manifestly impossible to reproduce in the laboratory the evolution of man from the australop ...

Uh. Sure. Steven Weinberg doing pretty good for himself.
Many of the great world religions teach that God demands a particular faith and form of worship. It should not be surprising that some of the people who take these teachings seriously should sincerely regard these divine commands as incomparably more important than any merely secular virtues like tolerance or compassion or reason. Across Asia and Africa the forces of religious enthusiasm are gathering strength, and reason and tolerance are not safe even in the secular states of the West. The historian Hugh Trevor-Roper has said that it was the spread of the spirit of science in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries that finally ended the burning pf the witches in Europe. We may need to rely again on the influence of science to preserve a sane world.It's not the certainty of the scientific knowledge that fits it for this role, but its uncertainty. Seeing scientists change their minds again and again about the matters that can be studied directly in laboratory experiments, how can one take seriously the ...

Old but great: the First Three Minutes by Steven Weinberg
'An atom's entire energy depends on the raw mass and the raw charge of an electron. The mass and charge appear in theoretic equations before thoughts turn to emission and absorption. Free electrons and electrons within atoms, however, constantly emit and absorb photons, which impact on the electron's naked mass and electric charge and, thus, the measured raw mass and charge do not have the same value as given in the elementary particle table. In order to be able to determine the size of the observed values of the electron`s mass and charge (which are of course finite), we have to take into account the raw mass and charge (which are infinite), The entire energy of an atom is the sum of two terms which are both infinite: the raw energy is infinite because it is dependent on the infinite mass and charge and the shifting of energy… this, too, is infinite because it receives an energy contribution from virtual particles which possess an infinite amount of energy.” [Prof. Steven Weinberg, 1979 Nobel laureat ...

Excellent article by Charles Krauthammer of The Washington Post. Washington For decades, The American Studies Association has labored in well-deserved obscurity. No longer. It's now made a name for itself by voting to boycott Israeli universities, accusing them po denying academic, and human rights to Palestinians. Given that Israel has a profoundly democratic political system, the freest press in the Middle East, a fiercely independent judiciary, and astonishing religious and racial diversity within its universities, including affirmative action for Arab students, the charge is rather strange. Made more so when you consider the state of human rights in Israel's neighborhood. As we speak, Syria's government is dropping "barrel bombs", filled with nails, shrapnel and other instruments of terror on its own cities. Where is the ASA boycott of Syria? And of Iran, which hangs political, religious and even sexual dissidents and has no academic freedom at all? Or Egypt, wher Christians are being openly perse ...
I recently posted my thoughts relating to the lack of contributions to mankind from the Arab world since the 13th century. My wonderful son, Sam, has seriously questioned my argument. The following, for anyone who actually cares, is my research on the subject. As far as I'm concerned their only major contribution in modern times is in literature (specifically Naguib Mahfouz, Nobel Prize winner) and film making where they are beyond superb. Especially Asghar Farhadi, the director of two of the finest films of this year and last. The Separation and The Past. Beyond that the Arab world concentrates totally on sectarian violence and primitive punishment of women. Just so it shouldn't look like I'm the only person who thinks this I'm including a study made by "The New Atlantis" A journal of technology &society. There are roughly 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, but only two scientists from Muslim countries have won Nobel Prizes in science (one for physics in 1979, the other for chemistry in 1999).

"Side by side with the main stream of scientific knowledge, there are isolated small back-waters with something splashing there, in fact what I (by selecting the most neutral terms) would call para-science: astrology, divination, telepathy, clairvoyance, telekinesis, creationism, and many of their varieties. If we could prove that at least one of these concepts have some truth, it would be the discovery of the century, much more important and significant than anything that is happening today in the normal physics." Nobel Prize-winner Steven Weinberg, the creator of the theory that brought together the weak and electromagnetic forces in nature, wrote.
Aha! Steven Weinberg. It's a long read. Bookmarking to read it in leisure. :)
Scientists believe that our universe began with one enormous explosion of energy and light, which we now call the Big Bang. This was the singular start to everything that exists. The beginning of the universe, the start of space, and even the initial start of time itself. Nothing we observe today existed prior to that exact moment. Further, it was something outside of time, outside of space, and outside of matter that caused all of this to come into existence. The realization that our universe started, and did not always exist, brings enormous challenges to nontheistic scientists. Are scientists certain of this Big Bang Theory? Yes. In the late 1920's, astronomer Edwin Hubble saw through his telescope that galaxies (some millions of light years away) were hurtling away from each other at fantastic speeds. This was not caused by some force thrusting them away from each other. Rather, they were still moving as a result of a primeval explosion, all from one point of origin. In this point of origin, all the m ...
I have the impression that these days most theologians are embarrassed by talk of miracles, but the great monotheistic faiths are founded on miracle stories—the burning bush, the empty tomb, an angel dictating the Koran to Mohammed—and some of these faiths teach that miracles continue at the present day. The evidence for all these miracles seems to me to be considerably weaker than the evidence for cold fusion, and I don't believe in cold fusion. ~ From the paper, "Is there a Designer Universe?": By Steven Weinberg

"Facing a similar (British) academic boycott of Israelis seven years ago, Alan Dershowitz and Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg wrote an open letter declaring that, for the purposes of any anti-Israel boycott, they are to be considered Israelis. Meaning: You discriminate against Israelis? Fine. Include us out. We will have nothing to do with you. Thousands of other academics added their signatures to the Dershowitz/Weinberg letter. It was the perfect in-kind response. Boycott the boycotters, with contempt." -Charles Krauthammer ("How to fight academic bigotry")
Awestruck by Nature! SCIENTIFIC research has provided many insights into the workings of the universe, or cosmos. Mankind now has a better understanding of it—from the tiniest building blocks of matter to the vast expanses of space. Even so, what remains to be learned is mind-boggling. Here on earth, we occupy a minuscule part of the vast universe. Yet, in our terrestrial home, we are awestruck by nature’s great complexity and beauty—a splendid flower, a breathtaking panorama, the spectacular plumage of a bird, a butterfly’s wings, a fiery sunset, or the smile of a loved one. Many people have found sufficient evidence in the physical universe to believe in the existence of an intelligent First Cause. The laws of physics, they say, seem to have been fine-tuned to support life. If the universe were set up just slightly differently, life would be impossible. Still, life, in all its fantastic diversity, is all around us. Cosmologist Paul Davies writes: “As the cosmic drama unfolds, it looks as if th ...
The new cosmologies are not shedding much light, except on the sheer power of the human imagination. Whatever they were supposed to explain has been rendered by their own rules unexplainable. What follows? In a 2012 triumph, the Large Hadron Collider detected the previously theoretical Higgs boson (the "God particle," thought to give everything in the universe mass). But the boson did not support any radical new cosmologies. Its lightness suggests the existence of other similar particles. That's promising for research but little more than that. Indeed, the Higgs's feast of data "seems to match the standard model's predictions perfectly" and leaves "usurpers of 'standard model' with little to chew on, as Nature put the matter in 2012. Science writer John Horgan says, "The Higgs doesn't take us any closer to a unified theory than climbing a tree would take me to the Moon." Meanwhile researchers are finding greater structure in the universe than they anticipated. Spiral galaxies are "pin-ups of the cosmos" a ...

After this was written there appeared a remarkable posthumous memoir that throws some doubt on Millikan's leading role in these experiments. Harvey Fletcher (1884-1981), who was a graduate student at the University of Chicago, at Millikan's suggestion worked on the measurement of electronic charge for his doctoral thesis, and co-authored some of the early papers on this subject with Millikan. Fletcher left a manuscript with a friend with instructions that it be published after his death; the manuscript was published in Physics Today, June 1982, page 43. In it, Fletcher claims that he was the first to do the experiment with oil drops, was the first to measure charges on single droplets, and may have been the first to suggest the use of oil. According to Fletcher, he had expected to be co-authored with Millikan on the crucial first article announcing the measurement of the electronic charge, but was talked out of this by Millikan. -- Steven Weinberg, "The Discovery of Subatomic Particles" Robert Millikan .. ...

On these and many other points as well, the great scientific theories have lapsed. The more sophisticated the theories, the more inadequate they are. This is a reason to cherish them. They have enlarged and not diminished our sense of the sublime. No scientific theory touches on the mysteries that religious tradition addresses. A man asking why his days are short is not disposed to turn to algebraic quantum field theory for the answer. The answers that prominent scientific figures HAVE offered are remarkable in their shallowness. The hypothesis that we are nothing more than cosmic accidents has been widely accepted by the scientific community. Figures as diverse as Bertrand Russell, Jacques Monod, Steven Weinberg, and Richard Dawkins have said it is so. It is an article of their faith, one advanced with the confidence of men convinced that nature has equipped them to face realities the rest of us cannot bear to contemplate. There is not the slightest reason to think so. While science has nothing ...
About the only solution the atheist can offer is that we face the absurdity of life and live bravely. The British philosopher Bertrand Russell, for example, believed that we have no choice but to build our lives upon “the firm foundation of unyielding despair.” Only by recognizing that the world really is a terrible place can we successfully come to terms with life. Camus said that we should honestly recognize life’s absurdity and then live in love for one another. The fundamental problem with this solution, however, is that it’s impossible to live consistently and happily within the framework of such a worldview. If you live consistently, you will not be happy; if you live happily, it is only because you are not consistent. Francis Schaeffer has explained this point well. Modern man, says Schaeffer, resides in a two-story universe. In the lower story is the finite world without God; here life is absurd, as we have seen. In the upper story are meaning, value, and purpose. Now modern man live ...

Kant taught that space and time are not part of external reality but are rather preexisting structures in our minds that allow us to relate objects and events. To a Kantian the most shocking thing about Einstein's theories was that they demoted space and time to the status of ordinary aspects of the physical universe, aspects that could be affected by motion (in special relativity) or gravitation (in general relativity). from "The Unexpected Uselessness of Philosophy" by Steven Weinberg

Is most morality secular, and is secular morality superior to religious morality? I think so. The fact that most religious people don't do evil things which their religious texts explicitly say they can or should do - AND don't do evil things which their religious texts don't explicitly prohibit, tells me that most morality is secular - at least to some degree. The greatest evil lies in those who most closely follow the "morality" of their religious texts - and in those who I might refer to as "secular psychopaths." The degree to which one more closely adheres to the "morality" described in their religious texts, is directly related to how immorally they conduct themselves in today's modern societies. That said, the hijacking of morality by religion(s) is an affront to reason and human dignity - and is a significant threat to the survival and well-being of humanity and human civilization. Religions have no demonstrable basis for their claims of moral authority, yet those claims have lead - and continue to ...

When you teach any branch of physics you must motivate the formalism — it isn’t any good just to present the formalism and say that it agrees with experiment — you have to explain to the students why this the way the world is. After all, this is our aim in physics, not just to describe nature, but to explain nature. --- Steven Weinberg
The relationship between religion and science has been a subject of study since Classical antiquity, addressed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others. Perspectives from different geographical regions, cultures and historical epochs are diverse, with some characterizing the relationship as one of conflict, others describing it as one of harmony, and others proposing little interaction. The extent to which science and religion may attempt to understand and describe similar phenomena is sometimes referred to as a part of the demarcation problem. Science and religion generally pursue knowledge of the universe using different methodologies. Science acknowledges reason, empiricism, and evidence, while religions include revelation, faith and sacredness.

Quoting my teacher Dr. Wallace who is a physicist and buddhist scholar: "All particles of matter and energy are now believed to consist of oscillations of immaterial, abstract quantities, known as “fields,” existing in empty space. Steven Weinberg, a Nobel Laureate in physics, comments, “In the physicist’s recipe for the world, the list of ingredients no longer includes particles. Matter thus loses its central role in physics. All that is left are principles of symmetry.” Incredible isn't it? quantum physics is becoming closer to the buddhist understanding of emptiness!

A Brief History of the Multiverse The idea of an inflationary multiverse (the universe consisting of many universes with different properties) was first proposed in 1982 in my Cambridge University preprint Nonsingular Regenerating Inflationary Universe . A more detailed discussion of this possibility was contained in my paper The New Inflationary Universe Scenario published in the book "The Very Early Universe," ed. G.W. Gibbons, S.W. Hawking and S.Siklos, Cambridge University Press, 1983, pp. 205-249. Implications of this picture for the "SUSY landscape" (the universe with different properties corresponding to different vacua of supersymmetric theories) was discussed in my paper Inflation Can Break Symmetry In SUSY, Phys. Lett. B131, 330 (1983). A major step in the development of the theory of the multiverse was related to the discovery of eternal inflation; for a discussion of its anthropic implications see the last page of my paper Eternally Existing Self-Reproducing Chaotic Inflationary Universe, Phys ...

I thought about them. George Carlin and Steven Weinberg too.
He Never Lost a Friend Steven Weinberg was not a cook, but he loved to go to the supermarket. He was not a collector, but he was nonetheless a familiar figure at garage sales in New City, N.Y. As his family's social secretary, an assistant basketball coach for his children, a man of 41 who kept every friend he ever made, all the way back to childhood, Mr. Weinberg never passed up an opportunity to run into someone he knew. He enjoyed his position as an accounting manager at Baseline Financial Services, but it was as Laurie Weinberg's husband of 14 years; as the father of Lindsay, 12, Samuel, 8, and Jason, 6; and as a people magnet that Mr. Weinberg glowed. His wife said he had a distinct relationship with each of his children but a single message for all: "Stop fighting." He planned every family outing with other families. Seven hundred people attended his memorial service.

Thought for the day. Steven Weinberg via Be Secular.
I have to admit that I am something of an aficionado for the texts of scientism. Daniel Dennett, Steven Pinker, Carl Sagan and E. O. Wilson all grace my shelves with their well-written visions of a world ruled by science. Of course, Richard Dawkins also belongs to this company and I have enjoyed his books enormously. His atheism was a mild irritant that distracted from his other ideas but did not obscure them completely. Now, though, it is as an atheist first and a scientific exegete second that he wishes to be seen. If I read his views in The God Delusion aright, my Christian faith actually excludes me from those whom he wishes to convey his science. Science and faith are not compatible, he claims, and he has no desire for people like me to feel comfortable with both. Many atheists have given The God Delusion a hiding in the review pages of various journals. A few have stood up for Dawkins, Steven Weinberg among them, but these can only be described as the usual suspects. No one, as far as I can tell, ha ...
"At the other end of the spectrum are the opponents of reductionism who are appalled by what they feel to be the bleakness of modern science. To whatever extent they and their world can be reduced to a matter of particles or fields and their interactions, they feel diminished by that knowledge… I would not try to answer these critics with a pep talk about the beauties of modern science. The reductionist worldview is chilling and impersonal. It has to be accepted as it is, not because we like it, but because that is the way the world works." - Steven Weinberg, Dreams of a Final Theory
If you were gone tomorrow would your obituary be worth reading? Nobel-prize-winning physicist Kenneth Wilson died on Saturday at the age of 77. Here's the excellent obituary from Wilson's academic home, Cornell University. It's worth reading for clear way it describes Wilson's achievements and his personality Pioneering physicist and Nobel Laureate Kenneth Wilson dies ITHACA, N.Y. – Physics visionary Kenneth G. Wilson, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize in Physics, died at the age of 77 on Saturday, June 15, 2013, in Maine of complications following a lymphoma. "Ken Wilson was one of a very small number of physicists who changed the way we all think, not just about specific phenomena, but about a vast range of different phenomena," said Steven Weinberg, a fellow physics Nobel Laureate. The Nobel Prize recognized Wilson’s groundbreaking work on phase transitions, such as the transformation of a substance from the liquid to the gaseous state. Wilson was led to this breakthrough from his struggles with myste ...

Great quote originally said by Steven Weinberg, quoted by Lawrence Krauss.
In our universe, we are tuned into the frequency that corresponds to physical reality. But there are an infinite number of parallel realities co-existing with us in the same room, although we cannot tune into them ~ Steven Weinberg (Quantum Physicist)
May 6, 2013“Religion is the opium of the masses” is the argument often used by atheists to dismiss religion without addressing the substantial issues it addresses. Though many atheists have used this quote, its most well-known proponent is Karl Marx: “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.”What does this religion-opium argument imply? Atheists allege that just as opium intoxicates people with illusory feelings of well-being without offering any real relief, so does religion. Only when people stop taking opium will they shake off the opium-induced feelings of illusory well-being and strive towards real well-being. Atheists believe that the same applies to religion – only when people shed the false hopes offered by religion will they strive for actual well-being.This argument has several unstated assumptions. Because these assumptions are not subjected to serious intellectual scrutiny, the reli ...
Grayling fits physicist Steven Weinberg into this quote.
Some people have views of God that are so broad and flexible that it is inevitable that they will find God wherever they look for him. One hears it said that 'God is the ultimate' or 'God is our better nature' or 'God is the universe.' Of course, like any other word, the word 'God' can be given any meaning we like. If you want to say that 'God is energy,' then you can find God in a lump of coal. - Steven Weinberg -

By David M. Weinberg Last month, I highlighted a new Washington report headlined by former U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Thomas R. Pickering which argues that America should end its confrontation with Iran over Tehran's nuclear weapons drive. Pickering and his senior Washington colleagues want U.S. President Barack Obama to altogether drop sanctions and covert action against Iran, since the sanctions are only "contributing to an increase in repression and corruption within Iran," and alas "may be sowing the seeds of long-term alienation between the Iranian people and the United States." Pickering's call for American capitulation to Iran is now being echoed across the Washington wag world. Numerous think tanks are seeding the American diplomatic . ...
Does the natural disaster in Oklahoma prove that there is no supernatural God?
We should be tolerant but should we be so tolerant to other cultures when they are opposed to all the values we hold ? Muslim culture is just about everything I hate… intolerant, brutal, oppressive, sexist, homophobic, backwards, superstitious, primitive, bullying, racist. We should do everything we can to discourage it in our society, there is no place for this primitive bronze age thinking in a modern world. We should NOT respect others' religious beliefs, they can be shown to be wrong and they deserve no more respect that someone who believes in fairies. It's time the human race grew up !
People saying that they hate the way the countries run after what happened yesterday but that's exactly the point (albeit an extreme way to put across) he was making, people are at war dying for their government but the people that orchestrate the war will never risk their lives over it always someone else's, aside from the fact it was truly awful what happens the point he makes rings a lot of truth
Not one of my FB Muslim friends have as much as mentioned the slaying in Woolwich yesterday. Why not guys? Statistically at least one of you should have at least mentioned it.

Absolutely sick times were living in. You cant help people feeling fear and wanting to retaliate in times like this when a group of people threaten your way of life, But You really have to look at this without prejudice though and dont let the media spin it out to create more hate... Two fanatical muslims have killed a man and no doubt there will be many more attacks over the years. There is no question we have to fight back against ANYONE who threatens our God given right to have peace. But remember that hatred and evil isnt confined to race religion or colour! Do you remember the massacre in the lakes? Derrick Bird was white and killed 12 people. This doesnt mean that whites should be banned from the Lake District!? Its because of hatred for eachother than these things happen!!!
Stalin, Hitler, Mao all denied God at one point in their life, and when that denial is made choices naturally follow in virtually every facet of life, and the undergirding philosophy that determines what choices are made in the negation of God’s existence. One should at least have the maturity and intellectual honesty to acknowledge Marxism-Leninism for what it was: a thoroughly thought-through attempt to reorder society politically, economically, socially and culturally using an ideology firmly rooted in atheist and materialist first principles. Steven Weinberg apparently believes that the crimes of religious regimes reflect the true face of religion, while the crimes of atheist regimes represent a distortion of the atheist spirit of rational and scientific inquiry. How conveniently the atheist plays word games! When it is Stalin or Pol Pot who does the slaughtering, it is because they are deranged or irrational ideologues; their atheism has nothing to do with their actions. But when a Holocaust is en ...

In the next few days you can bet you'll hear Islamic leaders comment on the media about how they don't agree with what has happened in London, remember these 2 Islamic teachings: taqiyya and kitman. In Islam there are two forms of lying to non-believers (that's us) that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.
There is a lot of love in this world.do not be convinced otherwise or oppressed into thinking we run for the shadows, that's what "they" want. That said, there's a handful of people who want you to start "hating" and "fighting" because of colour, because of religion, because of so-called beliefs. Well for me , whatever God you believe in or if you don't believe at all, its ok. Everybody has that right. One of the fundamental points of all religous values is right and wrong. and there is no religion that says killing is right . Again, that said, there are those "giving sermans from the backs of their cars" who's only "love" , is to read between the lines of their chosen holy book. This, purely for their own benefit, with not a moments thought for any individual or of the effect on their congregation. For each a road, for every man a religion. but the acts I see today across the world are not acts of religion. They are not even close. They are mindless acts by mindless individuals intent on causing pain s . ...

Last day of the sixth grade! And it feels better as a teacher than it did as a student.
Atheism teaches that: 1.There is no heavenly father. -Man must protect the orphans and foundlings, or they will not be protected. 2.There is no god to answer prayer. -Man must hear and help man. 3.There is no *** -We have no vindictive god or devil to fear or imitate. 4.There is no atonement or salvation by faith. -We must face the consequence of our acts. 5.There is no beneficent or malevolent intent in nature. -Life is a struggle against preventable and unpreventable difficulties.The cooperation of man is the only hope of the world. 6.There is no chance after death to "do our bit". -We must do it now or never. 7.There is no divine guardian of truth, goodness, beauty and liberty. -These are attributes of man. Man must defend them or they will perish from the earth.

The problem with communcating astrophysics is that there is a huge gab from the knowledge in field and the everyday life. Any communcation aimed at rousing people's interest in the field would have to answer the question: how is this relevant for my own life? This is difficult which is why most news about astrophysics is about disasters: supernovas. meteor-impacts, massive solarflares etc.

Nobel Prize Dr Abdus Salam was the only Nobel Laureate physicist from Pakistan and was a champion of science in the developing world. Salam was interested to establish the centre in Pakistan. He also passed on this idea to President Ayub Khan. When Ayub Khan briefed his Finance Minister, Mohammad Shoaib, about the idea, the minister dismissively replied, “Salam wants to make a hotel for scientists rather than a centre.” In 1979, he shared the Noble Prize of Physics with US physicists Steven Weinberg and Sheldon Glashow. For the Nobel Prize ceremony, he wore the traditional Pakistani dress of shalwar and sherwani with a turban. He was also allowed to give his speech in Urdu.
