'Curiosity’ a New Discovery Series

Guest Author - Amy Romine

In the beginning of the explorative show renowned author and scientist Dr. Stephen Hawking makes his intentions very clear, citing his recent book, co-authored by Leonard Mlowdinow, “The Grand Design” which defined the dividing line between critics along both sides. Hawking embraces the controversy, reminding all of the still bitter war between science and religion. He looks at the ever famous Galileo, Pope John XXI, who I think should have taken the roof of his bedroom falling on his head and killing him as a sign that gravity is not something to be ignored.

The science and the history of the debate are both enthralling and eye opening. The show simplifies the most complex mechanisms down to a basic 1+1=2. My six year old became captivated, and the questions from not only him, but my seventeen year old abounded. Why Dr. Hawking, in his brilliance managed to come up with a very logical and convincing argument of how is it impossible that an almighty power created the universe, I am not sure he is going to sway any votes on either side of the fight.

The series is based on the simple notion of human curiosity. The single word that has driven us forward into each new discovery, all because someone, somewhere, at sometime asked the questions “I wonder what would happen if…” The simple beginning of the thought ignites an eruption of what if’s in any humans mind, no matter what their social standing, education, or ambition. The old saying of “What if” & “I wonder if” will drive you crazy is substantially true for some, for others, like Dr. Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, Mary Curie, and Thomas Edison, that single question is what drove them and us as a race to new heights and greater discoveries.

The first question posed is not surprisingly a question of faith versus religion; the premier episode in a 60 episode long series that promises to ask and answers the most fundamental questions facing the world today. Each episode of ‘Curiosity’ will focus on a single enduring question in science, technology, and society. As is always the case, one single question cascades into several more, making each episode of ‘Curiosity’ an unforgettable experience. The episodes have some star power attached to them which makes, for me, the series even more intriguing. Celebrities like Robin Williams, Mike Rowe, Samuel L Jackson and Maggie Gyllenhaal will be hosting subsequent episodes.
