The biggest mysteries of the universe How big is the universe? What is it made of? What happened at the Big Bang? What are dark matter and dark energy? What happens near the event horizon of a black hole?
Modern science has opened our horizon to an unexpected cosmos: a universe filled with mysterious forms of matter and energy, and with places and events where the known laws of physics literally break down. We will embark on a journey through space and time, and discover how the biggest mysteries in the universe appear to have something in common: they sink their roots into a microcosm ruled not by gravity, but by quantum physics. We will then see how a new science, which we refer to as "multi-messenger" astronomy, may hold the keys to finally solve these mysteries, and establish a connection between the infinitely large and infinitely small.
Cosmic Crooner Cosmic Crooner is a silver-tongued lounge lizard. Through his self-proclaimed ‘Doowop Space Pop’ there’s guarantee his orchestral tone poems and rock ’n’ roll vigour will have you swooning. Heavily inspired by classic movies, 60s and 70s music, Cosmic Crooner is no stranger to offering up a varying palette of sonic natures.
This event is an initiative by the Dutch Institute for Emergent Phenomena (DIEP) with the support of NWA Route2.
