Welcome to the Pretty Intense Podcast with our guest Sara Walker. Sara is an Astrobiologist, and a theoretical physicist. Sara is most interested in the origin of life. Where did we come from? Why are we here? Potential life on other worlds. Sara's intelligence can be intimidating, but there is no other way to learn, except to get outside what you already know. Today's interview was a very interesting, enlightening, confusing, about life, and how it came to be. Exploring concepts of biology, quantum physics, space and time. Time is of great interest to Sara. Considering if time exists, and is it the causal platform to create life and universes. If you are into science, and how life began, you are going to be riveted to this episode with Sara Walker.
Sara Walker is a theoretical physicist and astrobiologist working new theory of physics that might allow us to understand what life is, its general characteristics, its origin on Earth, and how to find alien examples. At Arizona State University she is the deputy director of the Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science, associate director of the ASU-SFI Center for Biosocial Complex Systems, and associate professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the School of Complex Adaptive Systems.
