Prof. Grant Mathews

Tuesday September 1st 2015 - 7:00 pm

101 Jordan Hall of Science

In this talk we will journey across the Universe and into its deep past. Learn how the Universe is a time machine and how Einstein’s theory of relativity helps us to conceptualize the meaning of space and time.

Discover some current views and research on the formation and evolution of the universe and discover some of the most fundamental questions in Physics:

  • How did the Universe begin?
  • Why is the Universe so large?
  • Is the Universe finite or infinite?
  • Why are there only 3 large space dimensions plus time?
  • What is cosmic inflation, the multiverse, and why we believe there are parallel universes?
  • What will be the future of the Universe?
