  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 03/19/2005
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • McKay Lecture 03/19/2005
  • Description: During the first half of the 20th century, astronomical observations and physics theory combined to suggest that the universe began in a hot, dense, nearly uniform state. It has been expanding and growing more complex ever since. Determine the evidence which led to this extraordinary conclusion, ridiculed by opponents as the "big bang theory". Figure out some logical consequences of the big bang; the predictions of the theory.
