Speaker: Prof. Maurizio Salaris Astrophysics Research Institute Liverpool John Moores University
Our universe displays a beautiful tapestry of stars overimposed onto a cold and dark background.
The reasons why stars and (as a consequence) life exist are related to the very special conditions of the universe at the moment of the Big Bang.
The lecture will introduce the audience to these issues and the challenge they pose to physics and cosmology.
