Latest Hintze Lecture Tackles “The State of the Universe”

The latest lecture in the Hintze Lectures series at the University of Oxford was held on Monday 13th November 2017. The lecture was given by Professor Brian Schmidt, Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University and 2011 Noble Prize Winner in Physics.

Professor Schmidt described the “vital statistics of the Universe, including its size, weight, shape, age, and composition” and also sought to “make sense of the Universe's past, present, and future – and describe what we know, and what we do not yet know, about the Cosmos.”

The Hintze Lecture Series highlights contemporary developments in Astrophysics and Cosmology and is made possible by a donation from The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation.
