Weekend ‘Galaxy’ Insight –“Enigma of the Universe”





"There is a certain sense in which I would say the universe has a purpose. It's not there just somehow by chance. Some people take the view that the universe is simply there and it runs along-it's a bit as though it just sort of computes, and we happen by accident to find ourselves in this thing. I don't think that's a very fruitful or helpful way of looking at the universe, I think that there is something much deeper about it, about its existence, which we have very little inkling of at the moment."

Roger Penrose is renowned for his work in mathematical physics, in particular for his contributions to general relativity and cosmology. He was awarded the 1988 Wolf Prize for physics, which he shared with Stephen Hawking for their contribution to our understanding of the Universe.
