Speakers: Dr Pete Edwards, Dept. of Physics, Durham University

Our local star, the Sun, is just one of the many billions that form the vast collection we call the Milky Way Galaxy. As we look up into the night sky we know there are at least as many galaxies in the universe as there are stars in the Milky Way. We now know that these galaxies are not randomly distributed throughout the Universe, but form a spidery network that has a filamentary structure dubbed the ‘cosmic web’.
Come with us on a journey to discover and explore the structure of the Universe. We will reveal its shape and show how, using supercomputers, cosmologists are getting close to answering the question “How did the universe evolve into the beautiful place we see today?”
