Hitchhiker's Guide to Space-Time
Our Past, Present and Future
In this course, you’ll get to learn the ever-evolving story—the history of everything—in its monumental entirety from the moment the Universe grew from the size of an atom to the size of a galaxy in a fraction of a second.
More is unknown than is known. We know that roughly 68% of the universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27%. The rest - everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the universe. Yet we still do not know how ordinary matter survived against total annihilation by anti-matter.
The expansion of the Universe started acceleration about 7 billion years ago and the Universe is being ripped apart. The reason is Dark Energy, a mysterious energy multiplying in vacuum. We will talk about the evidence behind these startling discoveries and discuss what we may learn in the near future. And one of the biggest elements of the universe is - Time. Understanding time is the genesis for understanding our existence.
