Complexity in the Universe - Webinar

Hamilton Hamilton Division ON

Thursday, June 18 2020 from 01:00 am to 03:00 am

Wednesday June 17 at 7pm Webinar on Zoom presented by the Socrates Project McMaster University!
Our Universe began almost 14 billion years ago as a hot soup of energy and elementary particles. With modern telescopes we can peer back into the distant past and see the Universe as it was at early times, before the first stars and galaxies lit up the sky. We’ve learned that on the largest scales the Universe can be described by a few simple numbers, but on smaller scales incredible complexity arises. I will discuss the major observations that have led to this picture, with a focus on the evidence that our Universe is dominated not by the stuff that we can observe, but by dark matter and dark energy whose nature is still unknown to us.

Join Laura Parker in conversation with Katie Moisse for this online webinar exploring our universe.
