Joint Astrophysical Colloquium

EASTER LECTURE: The limits of Cosmology

Joe Silk (Oxford & JHU)

Wednesday 28/03/2018 @ 11:30, Sala 216 CNR

One of our greatest challenges in cosmology is understanding the origin of the structure of the universe, and in particular the formation of the galaxies. I will describe how the fossil radiation from the beginning of the universe, the cosmic microwave background, has provided a window for probing the initial conditions from which structure evolved and seeded the formation of the galaxies, and the outstanding issues that remain to be resolved. I will address our optimal choice of future strategy in order to make further progress on understanding our cosmic origins.
