Summary

The live stream for this event is sold out. 

Why is SKA set to rock the universe?

It took a few hundred million years before the arrival of the Cosmic Dawn, when the first stars and galaxies burst into existence. We know it all started with a big bang – but what happened after that? And where are we heading from here?

The nature of the universe has fascinated humans forever. Now 21st century technology allows astrophysicists to see better, hear more clearly and explore further than ever before, providing clearer insight into astronomical questions.

Join a constellation of astrophysicists and their celestially inclined counterparts as they shine new light into the cosmos to determine what the first stars looked like, the nature of dark energy and the future of the universe.

Hunting the Cosmic Dawn is presented with The University of Queensland.
