Cosmological conundrums – Tamara Davis to present public lecture

31 Oct 2022 4:16 PM | Anonymous

What is expanding space?  What came before the big bang?  Is there an edge to space?  What’s beyond the horizon of a black hole? What can the amazing images from the James Webb Space Telescope tell us?

Join Professor Tamara Davis, astrophysicist at the University of Queensland (and AIP’s 2011 Women In Physics Lecturer) to discuss these questions and more at her upcoming public lecture Cosmological Conundrums and the Dark Side of the Universe, delivered as part of the 2022 AIP Congress in Adelaide.

“When I'm having a chat with family and friends these are the questions I’m asked.  So, upgrade your repertoire for cocktail party conversation by learning about these and other cosmological conundrums,” says Professor Davis.

In this talk, you’ll dive deeply into the foundations of our cosmological model, and hear the latest updates on dark energy, black holes, and gravitational waves.

12 December 7:30-8:30 PM, Adelaide Convention Centre. Register via Eventbrite.
