The Language of the Universe (High School)
24 March 2021
Concert Hall, QPAC

Summary

Ever wondered how the universe works? Whether it is telecommunications, staying on your bike, colliding galaxies, or the Big Bang; physics is the science that describes how the universe – and everything in it – works. Join us for a journey through space and time as we explore physics from the very big (colliding galaxies and supermassive black holes) through to the very small (lasers and the coldest temperatures in the universe). Hear from world leading physicists and learn how astronomers studying the universe, magnetically levitating trains, and lasers are all linked by the same laws of physics.

The Language of the Universe is presented with QPAC.
