Kavli Lecture: Michael Turner, "From The Big Bang To The Multiverse & Beyond"
May 5 @ 7:30 PM, Adler Planetarium
We know the Universe began 13.7 billion years ago in an explosion of space called the Big Bang. We also know that the gravity of dark matter created the galaxies and other cosmic structures we see today from tiny quantum fluctuations that arose just after the Big Bang. Yet some big questions remain. On May 5, the University of Chicago's Michael Turner will explore some of the biggest mysteries in modern cosmology.
