Insights (TV series)

Insights is a public affairs television program based in Dallas, Texas. Originated by KDFW-TV program director Joe Bell, the show premiered on that station — then a CBS affiliate — on January 6, 1980. Originally focused on African-American issues, the program expanded over the years to cover topics of greater diversity, though the majority of guests continue to be Black. Insights won Emmy Awards in 2001 and 2004 for its episodes "Identity Lost" and "Paternity Fraud" and was nominated in 1997 and 1998 as well. The show also has received the award for best public affairs program in America by the National Association of Black Journalists and the Phoebe Award from the Texas Congress of Parent Teacher Associations.

So central are these remarkable insights into the nature of space and time that we shall use them as a guiding theme in all that follows.

Einstein formalized this idea, one that actually goes back to insights of Galileo, by proclaiming that it is impossible for you or any fellow traveler to perform an experiment within the closed compartment that will determine whether or not the train is moving.

These conditions, as is by now familiar, require that both quantum mechanics and gravity be taken into account, and hence the birth of the universe provides a profound arena for exercising the insights of superstring theory.

But, as with most successful theories, our new insights raise yet more detailed questions.
