What Was the Universe Like Before the Big Bang? | Unveiled
What was it like BEFORE the universe existed? Join us... and find out! Subscribe for more from Unveiled ► https://wmojo.com/unveiled-subscribe The Big Bang Theory is the most widely followed model for the creation of the universe. It says that, at one time, all of the matter and energy in the universe was coiled up in a ball about the size of a grapefruit... until it came to life 13.8 billion years ago! But what existed BEFORE then? In this video, we find out! This is Unveiled, giving you incredible answers to extraordinary questions! 0:00 Start

The NEW Crisis in Cosmology
https://www.patreon.com/pbsspacetime I have good news and bad news. Bad news first: two years ago we reported on the Crisis in Cosmology. Since then, it’s only gotten worse. And actually, the good news is also that the crisis in cosmology has actually gotten worse, which means we may be onto something! The most exciting thing for any scientist is when something they thought they knew turns out to be wrong. So it’s no wonder that many cosmologists are starting to get excited by what has become known as the Hubble tension, or the crisis in cosmology. The “crisis” is the fact that we have two extremely careful, increasingly precise measurements of how fast the universe is expanding which should agree with each other, and yet they don’t.

I love making videos about science with an unnatural level of enthusiasm. I like to focus on how we know things, not just what we know. And especially, the things we still don't know. If you've ever wondered about something in space and couldn't find an answer online - you can ask me! My day job is to do research into how supermassive black holes can affect the galaxies that they live in. In particular, I look at whether the energy output from the disk of material orbiting around a growing supermassive black hole can stop a galaxy from forming stars. http://drbecky.uk.com
Big Bang Astronomy from the Ends of the Earth
The Universe | After Dark Online
How does our understanding of the origins of the universe continue to expand and evolve? What tools and theories continue to push our understanding into further realms? Hear from Black scientists and leaders whose work is at the forefront of cosmology and essential to forming and informing humans’ deepening grasp of the science of the universe. This program features: What is dark matter made of—and is dark matter really dark? In her work, theoretical physicist Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein explores axions, a type of hypothetical elementary particle, and the compelling role they may play in understanding what makes up dark matter. Tonight, she’ll share more about the nature of the axion, its possible relationship to dark matter, and some surprising insight into what dark matter really looks like. Dr. Prescod-Weinstein is an assistant professor of physics and a core faculty member in women’s studies at the University of New Hampshire. Her book The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, and Dreams Deferred will be released in March. (begins at 3:45) What emerging tools and instruments may support a better understanding of how the universe was formed and has evolved? As a researcher with NASA’s Astrophysics Science Division, Dr. Gregory Mosby works on observational astronomy and developing new tools. Tonight, hear from him about his work on the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope and the ways modeling and machine learning can support an expanded understanding of the universe.

The First Billion Years of the Universe - with Emma Chapman
What happened after the Big Bang? When did the very first stars burst into life? Why are those stars were so unusual, and what they can teach us about the Universe today?
Watch the Q&A: https://youtu.be/9zxsC68PJUI
Emma's book "First Light" is available now: https://geni.us/GpAa0x Emma Chapman is currently based at Imperial College London, where she is a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow. Emma has spent her research career in London so far, completing her PhD and first postdoctoral position at UCL before heading off to Imperial College for a Royal Astronomical Society fellowship. Her research is in the Epoch of Reionisation, a rather off-putting name for a very exciting time in our Universe – when the lights first switched on. As those first stars formed and started flinging out high energy radiation, they formed bubbles of ionised hydrogen around them. We can observe this hydrogen today with radio telescopes and the race is on to make the first detection of the Epoch of Reionisation. Emma works mainly with the European telescope LOFAR based in the Netherlands. This talk was recorded on 1 December 2020.

Infinity & Beyond — Episode 12: Cosmic Distances
“Space is big,” wrote Douglas Adams, and he wasn’t kidding. Familiar units of distance, like miles and kilometers, quickly become too unwieldy to use in cosmic discussions. After all, we don’t say the Empire State Building stretches 17,448 inches or describe a bacterium as measuring 0.000001 meter. Instead of ending up with similar “astronomical” figures, scientists use units like light-years, parsecs, and astronomical units to help make sense of it all. Just to get to the Moon, on average, it’s 239,000 miles (384,400 kilometers) — and that’s practically our next-door neighbor. It’s a lot farther than people think! The Sun lies some 93 million miles (150 million km) away, an expanse so large, it forms the basis of our first new unit of distance, conveniently named an astronomical unit, or AU. Astronomers often use this unit to describe distances within solar systems, between planets or companion stars. But even something as big as an astronomical unit isn’t enough for the hugeness of space. The nearest star to us, other than the Sun, is Proxima Centauri, likely part of the Alpha Centauri system. It’s about 267,000 AU away, so astronomers often turn to another unit of measurement: the light-year. This is the distance that light travels in a vacuum for one year: about 6 trillion miles (9 trillion km), or 63,000 AU. Thus, the distance to Proxima Centauri is also 4.22 light-years. In this episode of Infinity & Beyond, join host Abigail Bollenbach as she puts cosmic distances into perspective. Stay up-to-date on the latest space and astronomy news at https://astronomy.com/news.

The Big Bang has been the accepted theory about the beginning of the universe for so long, you might think we've worked out all the kinks in it. But there are several issues with the Big Bang Theory, which has caused some cosmologists to turn to alternative ideas. The Ekpyrotic Universe, based on string theory, is one of those ideas.

A New Way to Measure The Expansion of the Universe. The Cosmological Crisis Deepens.
This episode is a segment that we did in the Weekly Space Hangout talking about how astronomers are using masers (water lasers) to measure the expansion rate of the Universe. You'd think that another, independent way to measure the expansion rate of the Universe would be helpful, but it's only deepened the mystery of the cosmological crisis.

Prof. Martin Rees IUCAA Colloquium, June 18th, 2020
Prof. Sir Martin Rees (Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge) Title: Progress and frustration in Cosmology Abstract: It is gratifying that some of the key numbers describing our Universe have been measured to a precision of a few percent. We are learning about the emergence and properties of galaxies, stars, planets and life -- and how this chain of events depended on these numbers. These advances have sharpened up new mysteries. Some of these will be clarified by new observations; others, such as the overall scale of the universe (and whether we inhabit a multiverse) are likely to prove frustratingly intractable.

https://mailchi.mp/1a6eb8f2717d/spacetime Conformal Cyclic Cosmology is a story of the origin and the end of our universe from great mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. It’s goes like this: the infinitely far future, when the universe has expanded exponentially to to an unthinkably large size, and every black hole and particle has decayed into faint radiation .... that infinite stretch of space and time is identically the SAME THING as the infinitesimal and instantaneous big bang of a new universe, and our universe is just one in an endless chain.
