Cancelled - Cosmology from the microwave background

Wednesday 11 February 2015, 2.00PM

Speaker(s): Professor Jo Dunkley, University of Oxford

Please note that this colloquium has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. A rescheduled date will be published once available.
The Cosmic Microwave Background provides us with a wealth of information about the Universe. I will show results from the Planck satellite mission, which mapped the microwave anisotropy from 2009-13, and describe other recent progress in the field from Chile and the South Pole. I will discuss the status of the LCDM cosmological model, which is now well established but has significant features yet to explain. I will describe some future directions for investigating the physics of the very early universe, and of the cosmic dark sector.
