If you have a question about this talk, please contact physics-secretary.

Modern physics attempts to explain the full complexity of the physical world in terms of three principles: gravity, relativity and quantum mechanics. This raises important fundamental questions such as: ‘Why is our Universe so large and old?’ and ‘Why is it almost, but not perfectly, homogeneous and isotropic?’ Professor Efstathiou will describe how recent measurements of the cosmic microwave background radiation can help answer these questions and elucidate what happened within 10-35 seconds of the creation of our Universe.

The talk is free for CUPS members, £2 for non-members, and will be followed by a wine reception.
