Lawrence Henderson pointed out in 1913 that the cosmos seems to have provided an environment especially fit for the existence of life. How do we take into account this astonishing fitness and continue to uphold the relevance and trustworthiness of science? Professor Gingerich will draw upon the history of chemistry, spectroscopy, nucleosynthesis, and astronomy to explore the possible fine-tuning of the universe.
