Who are we and why are we here? These questions define humanity’s relationship with the universe – and have led to extraordinary discoveries. In The Greatest Story Ever Told…So Far, theoretical physicist and acclaimed author Lawrence Krauss shows how humankind came to understand the universe. Lawrence’s passion for the natural world is contagious. Watch in awe as Lawrence and astrophysicist Alan Duffy trace the history of scientific discovery.
Lawrence Krauss (International)

He writes for numerous newspapers and magazines including The New York Times and The New Yorker, and appears on TV and in various feature films.
Alan Duffy (Australian)
Alan Duffy is an astrophysicist at Swinburne University, where he creates baby universes on supercomputers to understand how galaxies like our Milky Way form and grow within vast halos of invisible dark matter. He is attempting to find this dark matter as part of SABRE, the world's first dark matter detector in the Southern Hemisphere. When not exploring simulated universes you can find Alan explaining breaking science as a regular on ABC TV's NewsBreakfast, Ten's The Project and ABC Radio Sydney.
