In this recent What it Takes podcast, Nobel Laureates John Mather, BIDS Faculty Director Saul Perlmutter, and Adam Riess talk with Alice Winkler about what drew them to study the cosmos, and what the universe has to teach us: "Much of what we know about the universe, we've learned in the past 25 years. These three astrophysicists, all Nobel laureates, were key to unlocking some of its greatest mysteries, including that the universe is expanding at an ever-faster rate. (For decades, scientists were certain it was slowing down.) Now they are poised to help us learn a whole lot more... starting this year, with the launch of the James Webb telescope."
