Kenneth Freeman : God, Galileo and a Universe Gone Dark
Deep Trouble PODCAST
with Dr Mark Halloran
In conversation with Professor Kenneth Freeman who is an Australian astronomer and astrophysicist. Prof. Freeman is currently Duffield Professor of Astronomy in the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at ANU. His research interests are in the formation and dynamics of galaxies and globular clusters, and he was one of the first researchers to point out that spiral galaxies contain a large fraction of dark matter. We discuss dark matter and his new book co-authored with David L. Block entitled God and Galileo: What a 400-Year-Old Letter Teaches Us about Faith and Science which is an exegesis on the dominance of atheism within science today. We also discuss how Professor Freeman reconciles his scientific work with his Christian faith.
