Good episode? Give it some love!
Marcelo Gleiser is a theoretical physicist who specializes in particle cosmology, working to study and make sense of the fundamental questions we all share about the origins of the cosmos, life and our conscious mind. On this episode, Marcelo shares…
  • His very close connection to Albert Einstein, how this connection invited Marcelo to learn beyond about Einstein the scientist; he was encouraged to learn about Einstein the man. 
  • His idea about “reality amplifiers” the tools we can use to help us discover the world around us.
  • Thoughts about what research has shown us (or not shown us) about dark matter! Dark energy! Gravitational waves! What are they!?! Will we ever really understand the universe? 
“Science, philosophy and religion are the tripod of humanity that have helped us find the answers to who we are.” – Marcelo Gleiser on the Casual Space Podcast

About Marcelo Gleiser: Marcelo Gleiser is a theoretical physicist at Dartmouth College specializing in particle cosmology—mixing the physics of the very smallest constituents of the universe with the physics of the universe as a whole. To make sense of the world and our place in the grand scheme of things, he studies the emergence of complex structures in nature, focusing on very fundamental questions related to what he calls the “three origins”: cosmos, life, and mind.
