FYI..... Marilyn ************************** Stephen Hawking's Universe--PBS http://www.wnet.org/hawking/ This companion site to a six part Public Broadcasting System series that began October 13, 1997 features a series of essays by _Astronomy Magazine_ associate editor Richard Talcott (the first two of which, Seeing is Believing, and In the Beginning are available at present). These essays discuss the great cosmological questions of the origins of the universe. There are also brief explanations for complex cosmological phenomena (Strange Stuff Explained) from antimatter to Hubble's Law to wormholes; short biographies of seventeen giants of cosmology including Copernicus, Eratosthenes, and Newton; explanations of eleven different universes from flat earth to steady state to big bang; and unsolved mysteries, where leading cosmologists discuss these very large, unanswered questions (three articles are available at present). A Teacher's Guide (Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] format only) and Ask the Experts sections round out this site. A link section is forthcoming.
