TED Talks: Stephen Hawking asking big questions about the universe

A weekly post featuring talks by innovative thinkers, sponsored by TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design). This is what the internet was made for – to allow challenging ideas to escape from their academic ghettoes and hang out in a place where they can talk to each other.

The biggest. Stephen Hawking whizzes through the questions of where we came from, how the universe come into being, what created it, are we alone, is there alien life, and what is the future of humanity. In less than 10 minutes. He thinks we already have a lot of answers, and are on track to discover a Theory of Everything. Bracing.
