Dr. Mario Livio

“It is surprising to realize that although curiosity is the motivational source of most things we do, the number of academics that focus on its study is so small.”


He is an internationally renowned astrophysicist, best-selling author and expert speaker. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has published more than 400 scientific articles on topics ranging from dark energy and cosmology, to black holes and extrasolar planets.

He is also the author of six popular science books, including Is God A Mathematician?, which served as the basis for the 2016 Emmy-nominated NOVA program The Great Math Mystery.

Livio’s book, Brilliant Blunders, was a national bestseller in the United States and was selected by The Washington Post as one of the best books of the year.

His most recent book, Why? What Makes Us Curious was published on July 2017.
