The First Second after the Big Bang

Prof. Dr. Daniel Baumann

NB: Deze lezing is (bij uitzondering) Engelstalig.

Recent observations of the cosmic microwave background have established a very successful model of the universe that accurately describes its history from 1 second after the Big Bang until today.

The first part of the talk will explain how we got to know what we now know about the structure and evolution of the universe during that time period. What happened before the first second after the Big Bang is less certain.

During the second part of the talk we will describe a few theoretical ideas for the physics of the early universe and how they will be tested by future observations.
