Robert Woodrow Wilson, a laureate of the Nobel Prize in Physics – an exclusive guest of Hyde Park Civilization. “How was the universe created? By the Big Bang. And here is the proof – we measured the cosmic microwave background radiation,” Robert W. Wilson could say in 1964. He and his colleague Arno Penzias thus confirmed the answer to one of the key questions of mankind: “What was at the very beginning?” How did they measure the radiation? What role did pigeon droppings play in this discovery? What did he like and dislike when working at the famous Bell Laboratories? And what should physicists focus on now? You will learn about all this in Hyde Park Civilization.
