The Design of the Universe

In the following video, astrophysicist, cosmologist and Nobel Prize winner George Smoot shows stunning new images from deep-space surveys, and prods us to ponder how the cosmos — with its giant webs of dark matter and mysterious gaping voids — got built this way.

  1. Such a pity that Dr. Smoot keeps saying 'designs' rather than 'structures'. Yes, he's at an Art & Design School, but there will be many who will seek to link his casual use of the terms 'creation', 'design', and 'designer' with their agenda of promoting Creationism (a.k.a. "Intelligent Design").

    It's not clear to me from my reading whether Dr. Smoot personally is religious, but it would be nice if he would take care in the words he chooses to describe the phenomena that his analysis of the data has revealed.
