Past Lectures

Event date: 
Monday, 10 January, 2011 - 19:00
Madingley Hall

Astronomer Royal Lord Rees explains how the first atoms, stars and planets emerged -- and how, on at least one planet around at least one star, life began and a complex biosphere evolved. What were the key stages in this process? How did the laws of nature allow such complexity to emerge, and what can we infer about the overall scale and structure of the cosmos? And what lies in the far future?
