Dark Energy and the Fate of our Universe – Academic Seminar this Wednesday, 18:30

This coming Wednesday will see the first academic seminar of the term! We have a great lineup of speakers for this term, and fittingly the talk this week is on a fascinating topic.

We are having the seminar slightly earlier this week – at18:30 – as there is a foosball competition afterwards :)

The speaker is Sonke Hee, and his title and abstract are:
Dark Energy and the Fate of our Universe
A gentle overview of where modern physics stands on the subject of dark matter and dark energy, looking at how we understand the universe at various different scales as well as in its entirety. The odd equation and scientific result will be interspersed throughout a general discussion about what we currently know and, more importantly, what we don’t.

As always, there will be wine, fruit & cheese afterwards!
