Cosmic Concepts

From the earliest times, humans have looked up at the stars and been fascinated. They learned to use them to find their way, to mark and predict the passage of the seasons. When we look across the Universe our horizons are broadened and our eyes are lifted above and beyond our own planet. 

In this first lecture series Astronomy Professor Katherine Blundell will be looking at how concepts developed in physics and cosmology have led to some of our most surprising discoveries about the Universe.
