Astronomer Leslie Wickman drops in on the podcast today!
Leslie Wickman first witnessed the expanse and majesty of creation through a telescope as a young child on one of those rare cloudless nights in the Pacific Northwest. She never could have guessed that it would lead her to working on parts of the Hubble telescope, training in space simulations and becoming designated as a corporate astronaut. In the episode, Leslie talks about her path through her many scientific endeavors and the development of her understanding of faith in relation to that science. We discuss the new Webb telescope, the possibility of life elsewhere in the universe, the multiverse, and the significance of fine-tuning as a pointer to God.
(The only thing that matters is faith expressed in love.)
As olivine, carbon dioxide and water are universal in all the eternal infinity of universes, as nature self tunes, then there have always been creatures in this dance.
