Astronomy Lecture Series: The End of the Beginning
Kane 120

Miguel Morales

We are no longer taking online registrations for this lecture. As a courtesy, we offer standby seating on a space-available basis beginning 15 minutes prior to the lecture's start time.

Part of The Big Bang & Beyond: Four Excursions to the Edge of Time and Space.

Inflation, particle production, huge sound waves and gravity waves—the early universe was a strange place. This phase of the universe culminated with the release of the oldest light we can ever hope to see: the Cosmic Microwave Background. In this lecture, Professor Miguel Morales will focus on how scientists read the subtle patterns in the Cosmic Microwave Background to infer what happened in the first few moments of our universe’s history—a time when the cosmos was a very different place than the one we live in today.

When: Wed. November 4, 2015; 7:30 p.m.
Where: Kane Hall
Room 120
UW Campus
Cost: Free, but advance registration is required.

About the speaker: UW Professor Miguel Morales’s research focus is observational cosmology, and he leads the Radio Cosmology group at the University of Washington. The Radio Cosmology group excels at state-of-the-art data analysis and the design and construction of next generation radio interferometers. Some of the group’s projects are measuring the expansion history of the universe (dark energy), searching for axions and developing new cosmology signatures.

Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
