From the quantum to the cosmos

Modern physics is split in two. To explain the large-scale Universe, we talk of the curved and expanding spacetime of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. We talk about probabilities and uncertainties and the language of quantum mechanics. In this talk, Geraint Lewis will take you on a journey over eternity, exploring where and how the quantum and the cosmos have worked to shape the universe around us.
