Scientists now understand the history of our universe better than the history of our own planet, but they continue to uncover startling new riddles.
In this electrifying talk, award-winning physicist Paul Davies will guide us through the puzzles and paradoxes that have preoccupied cosmologists from ancient Greece to the present day.
Laying bare the audacious research that has led us to mind-bending solutions, Davies will reveal how we might begin to approach the greatest outstanding enigmas of all.
Copies of Paul Davies's latest book 'What's eating the Universe?' are available from amazon and all good bookshops.
