The 15th Hintze Lecture will be delivered by Professor Brian Schmidt, Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University and 2011 Noble Prize Winner in Physics.

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
