The Undiscovered Universe

The Music:
The words ‘Marvel, o Men, at this great mystery’ open the first aria of this Advent Cantata, which ponders the enigmatic complexity of the Supreme Ruler. It has been suggested that this piece was a sketch for the aria “Großer Herr und starker König” from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio.

The Science:
Physicists are grappling with the most profound problems they have ever faced; 95% of the universe is made of stuff that we can’t explain, the basic laws of nature are fundamentally at odds with each and our best theories tell us that the universe shouldn’t exist in the first place. So far, all attempts to solve these problems have come up empty handed, including searches for new fundamental particles at the gigantic Large Hadron Collider. In this talk, Dr Harry Cliff will explore what the future may hold for the quest to understand the fundamental laws of nature.
