The View from the Centre of the Universe

Cosmology is going through a scientific revolution that is creating humanity's first picture of the universe that might actually be true. This lecture describes that picture and the remarkable fact that humans seem to play a central role in the universe.

Joel and Nancy will present both scientific and philosophical viewpoints, using spectacular new images and videos, updated ancient symbols and the latest astronomical data. They also use humorous cartoons to illustrate how cosmological ideas have widespread cultural implications. The talk is both entertaining and educational, and can be enjoyed by both experts and people who know nothing about astronomy.
