GENIUS BY STEPHEN HAWKING
Why Are We Here?

Air date: Wed., May 25, 9:00 pm

 

Renowned scientist Stephen Hawking presents three everyday people with a series of physical and mental challenges that show them how to think like a genius. Through large-scale experiments and demonstrations, Hawking decodes the mysteries of evolutionary biology, astrophysics and quantum mechanics, breaking down scienti­fic concepts in ways that are more easily accessible. The program “furthers my lifelong aim to bring science to the public,” said Hawking.

 

Why Are We Here?
Follow the team’s truly mind-bending challenge: Can they work out why they exist at all? Hawking takes them down a rabbit hole of profound realizations, helping them think like philosophers as much as scientists.
