Origin and evolution of the Universe consists of two talks and accompanying material (PowerPoint and PDF supporting text, images and animations).
- First talk Origin and evolution of the Universe
The aim of this talk is to invite the audience to reflect on the position of man in the cosmos and to provide a first contact with the most generally accepted theory of the origin and evolution of the Universe.
- Second talk The Big Bang model put to the test.
The Big Bang model describes the origin and evolution of the Universe. But do we have any evidence that it really happened? Are there any traces of this evolution in the sky? In this talk we describe the answers to these and other questions provided by modern science. We shall also see what questions we are not yet able to answer.
