A Fortunate Universe – Institute... @ Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre
Oct 16 @ 6:30 pm
Prof Geraint F Lewis and Dr Luke Barnes, University of Sydney Over the last forty years, scientists have uncovered evidence that if the Universe had been forged with even slightly different properties, life as we know it – and life as we can imagine it – would be impossible. Join us on a journey through how we understand the Universe, from its most basic particles and forces, to planets, stars and galaxies, and back through cosmic history to the birth of the cosmos, to the conclusion that we truly live in a fortunate universe. “Geraint and Luke take you on a tour of the Cosmos in all of its glory, and all of its mystery. You will see that humanity appears to be part of a remarkable set of circumstances involving a special time around a special planet, which orbits a special star, all within a specially constructed Universe. It is these set of conditions that have allowed humans to ponder our place in space and time. I have no idea why we are here, but I do know the Universe is beautiful. A Fortunate Universe captures the mysterious beauty of the Cosmos in a way that all can share.” Brian Schmidt, Nobel Laureate in Physics
