Hakeem Oluseyi | How We Know: The Big Bang | TEDx

description

Dr. Hakeem M. Oluseyi is an internationally-recognized astrophysicist, inventor, science communicator, and humanitarian.

In this TEDx Talk and throughout his public speaking engagements, writings, and teaching, Hakeem addresses diverse problems in astrophysics, including understanding the nature of the dark energy that accelerates our universe, the origin and evolution of the Milky Way galaxy, and the mechanisms by which magnetic fields heat and accelerate astrophysical plasmas. His work in technology development has included developing instruments for space-based astrophysical research and new techniques for manufacturing computer chips.

Originating from one of New Orleans' poorest neighborhoods, Hakeem has made it his life's work to educate the poor in America and in the third world. Some of his current science and education projects include being a member of the development team for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, which is the highest priority observatory for the US, the UNESCO Earth-Observing Satellite, which is a project between the US, Russia, and African nations, as well as Hands-On Universe Africa, a project to bring real scientific data to science classrooms in underdeveloped nations.

Dr. Hakeem Olyuseyi has three degrees, 8 U.S. patents, four E.U. patents and has hosted shows on the Science Channel and on Discovery. But more impressive is his life story. Olyuseyi grew up in the roughest neighborhoods of America, learned to survive on the street, and still taught himself Einstein’s theory of relativity from an old set of encyclopedias. At every turn he was presented with a compelling option to quit and yet he persevered. Today, he is a NASA astrophysicist, a global educator, and the author of a highly-anticipated upcoming memoir The Stars in My Soul: My Unlikely Journey through Space and Time where he recounts his journey from the streets to the stars. Dr. Olyuseyi is exclusively represented by Leading Authorities.
