How fast is the Universe Expanding – Expansion of the Universe Documentary

How fast is the Universe Expanding - Expansion of the Universe Documentary For much of this decade, the two most precise gauges of the Universe’s rate of expansion have been in glaring disagreement. Now, a highly anticipated independent technique that cosmologists hoped would solve the conundrum is instead adding to the confusion. In results unveiled1 on 16 July and due to appear in the Astrophysical Journal, a team led by astronomer Wendy Freedman at the University of Chicago in Illinois presents a technique that measures the expansion using red-giant stars. It had promised to replace a method that astronomers have been using for more than a century — but for now, the speed measurement has failed to resolve the dispute because it falls half way between the two co...

The Incredible Journey of the Hubble Space Telescope!

The Incredible Journey of the Hubble Space Telescope! Since its launch in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has delivered the most incredible images, amazing and inspiring not only scientists but also the public. But the dozens of terabytes of data collected are more than just pretty pictures. They provide a glimpse of the universe, from objects as close as the Moon to the most distant galaxies, with incredible photos of supernovae and nebulae in between.

Stellar Connections: Explorations in Cultural Astronomy – Pt. 4, Babatunde Lawal

Stellar Connections: Explorations in Cultural Astronomy - Pt. 4, Babatunde Lawal In Indigenous worldviews -- where humanity, nature, and the spiritual realm are closely connected -- the night sky provides spiritual and navigational guidance, timekeeping, weather prediction, and stories and legends that tell us how to live a proper life. Cultural astronomy, also referred to as archaeoastronomy or ethnoastronomy, explores the distinctive ways that astronomy is culturally embedded in the practices and traditions of various peoples. In Part 4, Babatunde Lawal gives a talk entitled "A Big Calabash with Two Halves: The Yoruba Vision of the Cosmos." Afterwards, Douglas Herman, Senior Geographer of the National Museum of the American Indian, moderates a Question and An...

The Next Big Questions in Astronomy – Professor Carolin Crawford

The Next Big Questions in Astronomy - Professor Carolin Crawford In her final Gresham Lecture, Professor Crawford talks about where the next big breakthrough will come from: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-next-big-questions For each exciting advance or discovery that takes place in Astronomy, other just as important questions either arise or remain unanswered. In my last Gresham lecture I shall review what the near future might bring – the exciting space missions, satellites and telescopes – and the fundamental scientific challenges they are designed to tackle. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-next-big-questions Gresham Colleg...
