Episode 64 – ‘The Man who Discovers Planets’
For thousands of years astronomers have been looking up to the sky, trying to understand what the hell’s going on up there. In the last 50 years technology has led to tremendous breakthroughs, and yet, we are still very far from solving the most essential of questions: how was all this created?
Prof. Tzevi Mazeh from Tel Aviv University has been trying to find answers to these questions for over 40 years. He was a guest researcher in Harvard, and as an astronomer, Prof. Mazeh took part in many important discoveries of stars, planets and other space phenomena.
Prof. Mazeh published the book “introduction to the Theory of Relativity”, and co-edited the book “Drishat Shalom”, a collection of articles about peace and justice from a biblical perspective.
Prof. Mazeh was also the chair of the political jewish-left-wing movement “Netivot Shalom”.
Prof. Mazeh is one of the most popular lecturers in Tel Aviv University, and apart from being a leading astrophysicist, he is also an expert in the history of Astronomy. And apart from that, he has also been teaching Talmud for many years.
Prof. Mazeh joins 2NJB today to talk about his out-of-this-world career.
