At the Edge of Time: Exploring the Mysteries of Our Universe’s First Seconds

Thursday, February 20, 7:00 p.m.

Dan HooperOver the past few decades, we have made incredible discoveries about how our cosmos evolved over the past 13.8 billion years. But there remains a critical gap in our knowledge: we still know very little about what happened in the first seconds after the Big Bang. Dan Hooper, senior scientist and head of the Theoretical Astrophysics Group at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, will examine how we are using the Large Hadron Collider and other experiments to re-create the conditions of the Big Bang and to address mysteries such as how our universe came to contain so much matter and so little antimatter.

Dan Hooper’s book, At the Edge of Time (Princeton University Press), will be available for sale and signing. 

Dan Hooper, PhD, is member of Fermilab's theoretical astrophysics group and an associate professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago. His research focuses on the interface between particle physics and astrophysics and in particular on the questions related to dark matter. He is the author of many books including Dark Cosmos, Nature's Blueprint, and most recently At the Edge of Time.
