Our Place in the Universe
Our ‘Flagship’ A level show
We look in detail at the Big Bang, The mechanics of the early universe, temperatures required for Atoms to form and why we cannot see behind the wall of ‘first light’.
We look at the famous WMAP image of Cosmic background radiation and how it was created. We also look at why temperature fluctuations at the beginning of time were vital for star and galaxy formation.
We look at our local Universe, clusters and super groups of galaxies. We also look at galactic types and why the form the way they do.
WE look at the Electromagnetic Spectrum, how red shift is important in proving the Big Bang theory, and why Infra Red telescopes are essential to expand our knowledge as well as how Radio Astronomy ‘sees the sky’.
How Einstein's model of Gravity superceded Newton, and how it works.
