For the night owls among us, physicist J. Richard Gott will be on the
nationally syndicated Art Bell radio show tonight (10/5-10/6). Gott has
been discussed here in a couple of contexts. First, he is credited as
co-discoverer with Leslie of the Doomsday Paradox, which implies that
the human race is likely to come to an end relatively soon. And second,
he has done work with Li-Xin Li on closed timelike curves leading to
their paper, "Can the Universe Create Itself?". He has a book out on
the topic, Time Travel in Einstein's Universe.
See http://www.artbell.com/stations.html for affiliated radio stations,
or you can listen to the show online at the web site. It starts at,
let's see, 0500 Saturday morning GMT, and runs for about 6 hours or so.
Usually the guest doesn't come on until after the first hour.
