An event aimed at the serious thinkers.
How old is the universe? Where did it come from? and How do we know?
An in-depth introduction to the scientific discoveries that have shaped our understanding of the universe on large scales. We will visit the faint afterglow from the big bang itself and discuss the expansion of space, with the elusive dark matter and dark energy an added component.
After the talk, we will venture outside and observe some of the objects that have shaped our experimental discoveries.
