BrisScience Lecture

The Dark Side of the Universe

In November I gave one of the monthly public lectures for UQ’s BrisScience event. We had a good little chat for the hour, first going over the history of the universe.

Fourteen minutes for fourteen billion years of cosmic history, sounds doable, right? Well, you need context to appreciate the second half of the talk.

That second half was then a very short introduction to dark energy and dark matter. What they might be, why we believe so strongly that they exist

If you’re curious about the talk itself, well, turns out that you can watch it online, on this fancy thing called YouTube!
