You see, there’s not just one crisis in cosmology. There are many crises! But don’t worry, that’s a good thing. Crises are what scientists live for! And what a time it is to be a cosmologist. We are at the forefront of uncovering the universe’s greatest mysteries, and we get to play with cutting-edge technology!  Recently, I got to share this passion of mine with Abhijit Chavda’s audience on his incredible show. We discussed the new and exciting breakthroughs that have been making headlines recently. But we also dove fearlessly into some of the most fundamental questions in cosmology that have been agitating the minds of thinkers for centuries. It was delightful to discuss the current state and future of cosmology. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did! Tune in.
