ASU professor Lawrence Krauss is elected to the International Academy of Humanists
Date:1/30/2014

TEMPE, Ariz. Lawrence Krauss, an Arizona State University Foundation Professor in the School of Space and Earth Exploration and the Department of Physics, has been elected to the International Academy of Humanists.

The Academy, which includes Nobel Laureates James Watson and Steven Weinberg, socio-biologist Edward O. Wilson, and author Salman Rushdie as members, is limited to 80 persons. It was established in 1983 to recognize distinguished humanists and to disseminate humanistic ideals and beliefs. Once elected, Laureates are members for life.

Members of the Academy are committed to free inquiry in all fields of human endeavor, a scientific outlook and the use of the scientific method in acquiring knowledge and promotion of humanist ethical values and principles.

"I was taken completely by surprise when I received the news of this election," said Krauss. "The mission of the Academy is something I support wholeheartedly, and I was humbled to learn that Laureates of the Academy include such a remarkable group of individuals. It is an honor to be included among them."

Krauss is internationally known for his work in theoretical physics and cosmology and is a well-known author and science communicator. His research covers science from the beginning of the universe to the end of the universe. His research interests include the interface between elementary particle physics and cosmology, the nature of dark matter, general relativity and neutrino astrophysics.

In addition to being a Foundation Professor, Krauss is the director of the Origins Project at ASU, which explores key questions about our origins, who we are and where we came from, and then holds open forums to encourage public participation.

Krauss is the only physicist to receive major awards from all three U.S. physics societies: the American Physical Society, the American Institute of Physics and the American Association of Physics Teachers. In
