Rosalind Franklin Lecture 2016 by Professor Jo Dunkley.
The night sky is fascinating to humans, giving us a window on space beyond our home on Earth. In this lecture, Professor Dunkley will describe how we have come to better understand our Universe, and some of the big questions about space and time that we are trying to answer. She will talk about her research in this area, studying distant light coming from the earliest moments in time, in a quest to understand the Big Bang, the ingredients of the Universe, and the fundamental laws of nature.
Professor Dunkley will also talk about the goal of engaging more young women to pursue physics, and about some of the scientists who have inspired and guided her.
