The Hintze lectures

The Hintze Lectures highlight contemporary developments in Astrophysics and Cosmology.
A generous donation by The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation enables world leading researchers to visit Oxford and deliver a lecture as part of this series.

This year, Professor Professor Brian Schmidt, Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University and 2011 Noble Prize Winner in Physics will deliver the 15th Hintze Lecture on Monday 13th November 2017 @ 17:30 in the Martin Wood Lecture Theatre.

Title: State of the Universe

Abstract: .
Our Universe was created in 'The Big Bang' and has been expanding ever since. Professor Schmidt will describe the vital statistics of the Universe, including its size, weight, shape, age, and composition. Professor Schmidt will also try to make sense of the Universe's past, present, and future – and describe what we know, and what we do not yet know, about the Cosmos.
