Topic:”Echoes of Our Beginnings”
By listening to the cold, dim hiss of the universe, we can learn about its fiery beginning. Prof. Renée Hlozek’s talk will focus on how cosmologists use microwave instruments to measure this birth-light. She’ll describe the exciting new Simons Observatory in the Atacama Desert of Chile, and how it will allow us to learn about the beautiful universe we live in. As we learn about what the universe contains, how it started and ultimately how it is going to end.
