Space. Time. What is the Universe? Where did it come from? Where is it going? If you've ever looked up to the night sky and been overwhelmed by these concepts then don't fear - tonight we will put them in context! We will go on an epic journey of understanding from the first instance of the Universe to the very edge of today's knowledge and the future of space-time.
A Guide to the Cosmos
In the beginning of time, before a Big Bang drove the universe to expand exponentially and evolve into the one we call home, the universe was compressed into a space smaller than an atom. This time in the distant past holds the keys to some of the most fundamental puzzles of the physical world. The object of this talk is to dive deep into these mysteries in the search for a deeper understanding of our present universe and how it will evolve in the future.
