15: Cosmology: From Uniformity to Fragmentation

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

The universe as we know it today was not always be like this and will not always like this. This is the central statement of modern cosmology. The evolutionary history of the cosmos is an example of how the structures which we observe and which first allowed biological evolution, in fact developed from a homogenous original condition through fragmentation. This seminar aims to contribute to a better understanding of the position of humans in the cosmos.
