Frontiers Lecture: The Cosmic Web - Mysterious Architecture of the Universe
by AMNH on
J. Richard Gott was among the first cosmologists to propose that the structure of our universe is like a sponge made up of clusters and filaments of galaxies intricately connected together—a magnificent structure now called the “cosmic web.” In this podcast, Gott discusses how ambitious telescope surveys are transforming astronomy, what the cosmic web says about the origins of the universe, and the next trillion years ahead.
This lecture took place at the Hayden Planetarium on March 14, 2016.
