Event Description

Pictures from the event

I will recall steps taken here at Princeton that led from the schematic physics of the cosmology I encountered in the mid-1960s to the present well-tested LCDM theory, and offer some lessons from the past on the future of research in cosmology. 

The Prof. Peebles colloquium will be part of a series of talks (Thurs. Oct. 27) on the general theory of relativity as it relates to the observed universe and, as part of that, to celebrate the 2019 Nobel Prize to Jim Peebles.
