A Fortunate Universe: life in a finely tuned cosmos

Frankland Lecture Theatre, Faraday Complex, Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster, LA1 4YW

Speakers: Prof Geraint F Lewis (Sydney)

Further information: Over the last 40 years, scientists have uncovered evidence that if the universe had been forged with even slightly different properties, life as we know it - and life as we can imagine it - would be impossible. With small tweaks to the way the universe works, we can erase the periodic table, disintegrate particles and remove all traces of structure in the cosmos. The fine-tuning of the universe for life is a major unsolved problem in the world of physics; it is crying out for an explanation, and leads us to question many of our deepest ideas about how the cosmos works.

Talk begins at 6:30pm, refreshments from 6:00pm.
