Planets, life and the Universe

2012年4月4日

Title: Planets, life and the Universe
Start time: 5:30 PM
Location: East Building Lecture Theatre 1.1
Description: Second Founders Day Lecture

Astronomers have made astonishing progress in probing our cosmic environment. We can trace cosmic history from some mysterious 'beginning' nearly 14 billion years ago, and understand in outline the emergence of atoms, galaxies, stars and planets and how, on at least one planet, life emerged and developed a complex biosphere of which we are part. 

But these advances pose new questions: What does the long-range future hold? How widespread is life in our cosmos? Should we be surprised that the physical laws permitted the emergence of
complexity? And is physical reality even more extensive than the domain that our telescopes can probe? This illustrated lecture will attempt to
address such issues.

Speaker: Lord Rees, Master Trinity College, Cambridge.
