For this discussion, Dr. Scott joins Dr. David Morrison, Director of the Carl Sagan Center for the Study of Life in the Universe.

Our current standard model of cosmology is, in fact, just the latest in a long line of “creation myths.” Why does it matter that this one is told by scientists? How can we encourage the general public to adopt suggested solutions for current/pending environmental challenges, when they appear to be losing confidence in science and scientists?

Moderated by Academy Fellow Dr. Jill Tarter, Bernard Oliver Chair for SETI at SETI Institute; welcome by Dr. Terry Gosliner.
