The Frontiers of Astronomy

How was our galaxy made? What are Black Holes? What is Dark Matter? What is Vacuum Energy?

The frontier of astronomy stretches from our Solar System to the edge of the observable universe to the moment of its creation: for when we look deep in space we look back in time. The border posts of this frontier are marked by questions:

  • Is there Life elsewhere in our solar system?
  • How was our galaxy made?
  • What are Black Holes? What is Dark Matter? What is Vacuum Energy? How did our Universe begin?

In this talk I will share our latest thinking on these big questions.

 

Speaker: Dr. Robin Catchpole, Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge University

Organised by: IET
