Frontiers Lecture: One Second After the Big Bang

Monday, June 8, 2015

Christopher Tully

One of the fundamental predictions of the Big Bang is the present day existence of relic neutrinos produced less than one second after the Big Bang. Join Christopher Tully as he discusses a new experiment called PTOLEMY (Princeton Tritium Observatory for Light, Early-Universe, Massive-Neutrino Yield) and its potential to challenge this core prediction, uncovering new interactions and properties of neutrinos, and to search for the existence of a species of light dark matter known as sterile neutrinos.
