STOQ LECTURE 2010
John David Barrow
The idea of the expanding universe and its consequences for the development of life. The inflationary universe theory and the evidence for it, and see why it has forced us to think in new ways about our place in a 'Multiverse' of universes and to rethink what we mean by the origin of the Universe and whether we should expect our universe to have had a beginning in time.
Presided by Card. Gianfranco Ravasi
