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

2012 he was given the Public Service Award from the National Science Board for his efforts in communicating science to general audiences. Last year he was awarded the "Roma Award Urbs Universalis 2013," by the Mayor of Rome.

Krauss has authored more than 300 scientific publications and nine books, including his most recent bestseller, A Universe from Nothing, which offers provocative, revelatory answers to the most basic philosophical questions of existence. It was on the New York Times bestseller list for nonfiction within a week of its release.

Krauss also wrote the international bestseller The Physics of Star Trek, an entertaining and eye-opening tour of the Star Trek universe, and Beyond Star Trek, which addressed recent exciting discoveries in physics and astronomy and takes a look at how the laws of physics relate to notions from popular culture. A book on physicist Richard Feynman, Quantum Man, was awarded the 2011 Book of the Year by Physics World magazine in the UK.

Krauss has been a frequent commentator and columnist for newspapers such as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. He has written regular columns for New Scientist and Scientific American, and appears routinely on radio and television. Last year, he was featured with Richard Dawkins in a new full-length film documentary, The Unbelievers, which is billed as a "rock-n-roll tour film about science and reason."

Krauss also serves as a co-chair of the board of sponsors of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, on the board of directors of the Federation of American Scientists, and is one of the founders of ScienceDebate2012.
