The Origin and Evolution of the Universe [90 mins] – Prof. Ian Morison – Gresham Professor of Astronomy 2007-2011 and formerly Operations Managaer at Jodrell Bank.

A survey of modern cosmology from Einstein’s 1915 theory of General Relativity to the present day. It will show how the standard Big Bang theories cannot be correct, that Inflation explains many of the mysteries of our Universe, and how observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background enable us to learn of its makeup – including Dark Matter and Dark Energy – and its precise age.
