Ever since Nicolaus Copernicus debunked the Earth’s relationship to the sun back in the 16th Century, scientists have struggled to quantify our significance. We’ll talk this hour about our planet’s relative order and how it relates to the seeming randomness of the rest of existence with Dr. Caleb Scharf, Director of Astrobiology at Columbia University. His new book is The Copernicus Complex: Our Cosmic Significance in a Universe of Planets and Probabilities.
