Between two infinities: Our place in the Universe – a conference by Gianfranco Bertone on 1 June

Between two infinites


Spectacular advances in modern astronomy have opened our horizon to an unexpected cosmos: a dark, mysterious universe, populated by enigmatic entities we know very little about, such as black holes, dark matter, and dark energy. 

In this public conference, Gianfranco Bertone – Professor of Theoretical Astroparticle Physics at the Center of Excellence in Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics, University of Amsterdam (GRAPPA) – will discuss how the new science based on gravitational waves may hold the keys to unlocking these mysteries. Bertone will highlight the surprising connections between the study of the universe on the largest scales and the physics of the infinitely small. 

The talk is a fascinating introduction to cutting-edge findings in recent cosmology, that could soon revolutionise our understanding of the universe and of the role we humans play in it.
