I found this awesome gem on io9. Back in 1988, Magnus Magnusson brought together three of the 20th Century’s most brilliant minds to discuss God, the Universe, and Everything Else. The hour-long program sees the three talking about everything from the Big Bang theory to contemplating human existence.
This needs to be watched! Three of the people I admire the most, with huge impacts on my life and really the lives of us all.
One of my favorite moments:
“The Hubble Space Telescope, which who knows, might be launched next year if we’re lucky”

With minds like these, you can rest assured that the conversation won’t stray far from what Sagan calls “the fundamental questions,” nor will it come untethered from established human knowledge and float into the realms of wild speculation and wishful thinking. And of course, in such conversations, a sense of humor like Hawking’s — a man who, not expected to reach age thirty, would nevertheless live to see more advancement in human knowledge than anyone else on the broadcast — never goes amiss.
