The immensity of the universe is overwhelming to comprehend. Pondering your place among so many planets and galaxies can't help but create a tremendous sense of awe and wonder. On today's show, we take a similar moment to evaluate not just our position in the world but also the origin of the world itself. First we hear how a skeptic of Big Bang Theory accidentally gave it validity. Then we talk to researchers sending messages to space to greet any extraterrestrial beings listening in.
