Fermilab Lecture Series - What Do Scientists Know About The Big Bang?

  • Feb 7, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • Fermilab's Ramsey Auditorium

Our quest to understand the origin, evolution and make-up of the Universe has undergone dramatic and surprising advances over the last decades. Much of the progress has been driven by measurements of the cosmic microwave background radiation, the fossil light from the big bang, that provides a glimpse of the Universe as it was 14 billion years ago. This talk will discuss what we have know about the Big Bang and how we learned it. We will also talk about the new questions we are asking about the origin of the universe and the experiments being pursued to answer them.

John Carlstrom studies the origin and evolution of the universe. His quest to make detailed measurements of the cosmic microwave background radiation—the 14-billion-year-old light from the Big Bang—has driven him to work at the coldest and driest desert on the planet, the high Antarctic plateau, where he is currently leading the 10-meter South Pole Telescope project at the National Science Foundation’s Amundsen-Scott South Pole Research Station.

    Miguel, I saw you (third row or so from the stage, to the right of center) when I was already seated, and when the lecture ended...but then lost you after the lecture. I enjoyed the lecture very much and learned some new things.

    I am planning to arrive early around 7-7:15pm. I'll be at the entrance wearing a blue shirt and a Meetup badge. I'll enter the auditorium at about 7:45pm. I may stay briefly after the talk with other Meetup people.
