>This video is a real Commodore Amiga Science gem: displays a television program in which Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking and Arthur C. Clarke discuss and exchange ideas about all the theory of everything, fractals, the Cold War and the origin of the universe.

All of this via satellite connection. The record dates is from 1988, the Commodore Amiga showing a fractal makes this material more endearing, a privilege that must be carefully looked at.

Much water has passed under the bridge since then: fractals are no longer fashionable, the Amiga can be run on a cell phone, and certainly Sagan and Clarke are no longer among us. However the topics for discussion are still open, despite the immense technological and scientific progress since then.

Several things are worthy of mention: the Hubble would not be released until two years later, they talked about the awkwardness of the education system to encourage creativity and curiosity of students, rather than current problem, and certainly the incredible humor Hawking simply taken out of the stadium. And all this without commercial breaks.

Stephen Hawking, Arthur C. Clarke and Carl Sagan (via satellite) discuss the Big Bang theory, God, our existence as well as the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
