Gresham College: First Light: Revealing the Early Universe

Gresham Professor of Astronomy and BBC Sky at Night presenter, Chris Lintott, returns to the theme of how insight is derived from observations, considering the cosmic microwave background.

This oldest light in the Universe, emitted just 400,000 years after the Big Bang, contains the seeds of the structures we see around us, and tells us about conditions at the Universe’s beginning.

It will also consider how measurements of the Universe’s expansion, made using the CMB, are leading to unexpected results, creating tension in modern cosmology.
