ASU has put Lawrence Krauss on administrative leave, while the university investigates allegations of sexual misconduct; Krauss has denied all of the allegations.

He’s perhaps best known for his work on the Origins Project at ASU, which brings together a diverse set of thinkers, ranging from federal secretaries to actors. Krauss is also involved with the Doomsday Clock, which was created by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and is used as a tool to warn of nuclear apocalypse.

Here to talk about this is Peter Aldhous, a science reporter for BuzzFeed News, who first reported on the allegations against Krauss.
