A pioneering center devoted to confronting the really big questions of science and philosophy.
Our research projects address such issues, and range from cosmology, through astrobiology to the ultimate fate of humanity. We tackle subjects as diverse as time travel, the colonization of Mars, multiple universes, the nature of complexity and the relationship between mathematics and nature.
- To create new and exciting ideas that push the boundaries of research a bit "beyond"
- To conduct research that transcends traditional subject categories
- To answer foundational questions in science, and explore their philosophical ramifications - what might be called "the big questions"
- To present science to the public as a key component of our culture and of significance to all humanity
