Professor Jim Dunlop, Institute of Astronomy, The University of Edinburgh.
Professor Dunlop will talk about how recent advances in observational astronomy, especially the refurbishment of the Hubble Space Telescope, let us to look back to within 500 million years of the Big Bang, and directly observe the emergence of the first galaxies.
Following the Big Bang, the Universe expanded and cooled until gravity caused the most dense regions of the universe to collapse and form the first stars and galaxies. Professor Dunlop will also describe how the next generation of facilities, including the long awaited James Webb Space Telescope, will shed new light on how today’s highly-structured and beautiful Universe emerged from the initial chaos of creation.
