(1) Andre at Biocurious collects some links on the question of Life: what, when and how? I have been watching Neil deGrasse Tyson’s My favourite Universe (which is a must-see, by the way) where some of this questions are discussed too, with specific reference to cosmology. And, as Andre notes, life is a great thing to think about.
(2) Exonintron points to an interesting interview with Dr. Ananda Mohan Chakrabarty; the interview runs for half-an-hour (I have not heard it yet. I am noting it here so that I may do so later).
(3) Sean posts a wonderful clip from a Woody Allen movie on the expanding universe (and non-expanding Brooklyn). I have to check-out Annie Hall from the library.
