15th Annual Misel Family Lecture: "How Our Universe Was Made: All from Nothing" 

Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022
7 p.m.

McNamara Alumni Center, Memorial Hall

The lecture will be presented by Professor Carlos Fenk of the Institute for Computational Cosmology, Durham University. 

Cosmology addresses some of the most fundamental questions in science. How and when did our universe begin? What is it made of? How did galaxies and other structures form? A coherent picture of cosmic evolution, going back to a tiny fraction of a second after the Big Bang, is beginning to emerge. However, fundamental issues, like the identity of the dark matter and the nature of the dark energy, remain unresolved. To read the full lecture abstract visit the Misel Lecture event webpage.
