The universe and our purpose in it remain vastly unknown. Many theories, beliefs, and reckonings exist about the “big scheme of things” but ultimately there are few concrete answers to our existential questions about earthly and heavenly destinations.
To explore the impact space has on the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of humans, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two experts in outer space and heavenly destinations, professor of astroparticle physics and preacher, Heino Falcke and astronaut, Colonel Terry Virts.
Heino Falcke created the first global telescope network to successfully photograph a black hole. He talks about his discoveries and his latest book, Light in the Darkness: Black Holes, the Universe, and Us.
Colonel Terry Virts, a captain of the Space Shuttle Endeavor, shares how being in space has changed his spiritual outlook and about his book, How to Astronaut: An Insider’s Guide to Leaving Planet Earth.
Heino Falcke is a professor of astroparticle physics and radio astronomy who seeks the vastness of the sky, believes in divine reason and a reasonable God. Stupid questions are often his best answer. He is blessed with Rhenish humor and East Prussian stubbornness. Falcke is a professor at Radboud University in Nijmegen and visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn. In his free time, he confides, baptizes, buries, and preaches as an ordained preacher in the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland.
