Figueroa will explain that, in fact, even if surprising to some, it is technically possible to take some sort of photograph of the beginning of the Universe

He will explain myths and facts about our current scientific understanding of the very first moments of the Universe

How to Measure Dark Energy – ESA’s Euclid Mission

October 13, 2020
Sentences containing search word
Mark Cropper (UCL) Abstract: The Euclid mission, to be launched in 2022, is designed to tackle some fundamental questions; why is the expansion of the Universe accelerating and what is the “dark energy” that is thought to drive it? what are the nature and properties of “dark matter”, how is it distributed and how has that changed over the lifetime of the Universe? Answers to these questions will dramatically change our view of the Universe and have the potential to require that physics textbooks are rewritten

The IOP and Oxford University are pleased to present Gravity's Role in the Story of our Universe by Dr Katy Clough
uk/e/gravitys-role-in-the-story-of-our-Universe-by-dr-katy-clough-tickets-116939205311 Einstein's strange and beautiful theory of general relativity has provided many a plot line in science fiction with its time-warping effects around black holes
But gravity also plays a major role in the story of our Universe as a whole, not least in the question of how the Universe “began”
Gravity tells us how to rewind the Universe to its beginning, but when we do, we seem to find more questions than we answer
Can gravity really tell us where we came from, and might this give us a clue as to where we are going? In this talk I will start by introducing you to Einstein’s theory of general relativity, and explain why it is fundamental to understanding how our Universe changes over time
This will lead us to our goal - a discussion of recent developments in using computational simulations of gravity to inform our search for answers in early Universe cosmology
Her work involves computational simulations of strong gravity environments in the early Universe and around black holes, as a way of understanding the origins of the Universe and the nature of dark matter

Public Talk by Prof Lance Dixon: Journey to the Heart of Matter A giant machine in Geneva, Switzerland smashes protons and other atomic nuclei to smithereens in a quest to explore what matter is made out of, to recreate the first moments of the Big Bang, and to discover the rules that govern our Universe
Join us in a journey to a strange quantum realm at the heart of matter, where particles pop in and out of nothingness, and scatter freely off each other in a tiny Universe of their own, before being bound together again for the rest of eternity
