Instant Expert: The Biggest Questions in Physics

It’s an extraordinary time to be exploring the fundamental reaches of the universe. We can look back through 14 billion years of cosmic history, recreate conditions last seen shortly after the big bang and exploit the weirdness of the quantum world to create exciting new technologies. Yet such advances have raised other profound questions.

What happened at the big bang? Are we alone in the universe? Where did black holes come from? Why does the quantum world behave so differently to our everyday experiences? Why is there a crisis in cosmology?

Join six experts on a mind-expanding trip through some of the biggest questions in physics. Learn about the progress we’re making and why it’s such an exciting time to working on both theoretical and experimental physics.

Anyone interested in the big question in physics, whatever your age or background. Whether you're a scientist, a student or simply a fascinated human being, Instant Expert: The Biggest Questions in Physics offers the chance to learn directly from the experts at our one-day masterclass.
