Happy Birthday to our Universe: 13800000000 Years Ago
The First Sky
A Star is Born
Brighter than Stars : Nebulae
Our
Galaxy
Milky Way
Cloud made of Hydrogen in our Galaxy
Even what we can not see also exists
Our Galaxy is one among Millions
How far are They ?
Our
Galaxy
Nearest
Galaxy
4 Light Years
= (300000 km/sec) X (4X365X24X60X60 sec)
= 40000000000000 kilo-meters !!!
To See the Unseen: Lens in the Sky
To See the Unseen: Collision in the Sky
Death of a Star: Supernova Explosion
What do they tell us ?
Age of the Universe = 13800000000 Years
Size of our Universe = 13800000000 Light Years
= 100000000000000000000000 kilo-meters !!!
Why are they so important ?
Universe is expanding at accelerated rate
Huge Energy Still Unknown
Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation
The Cosmic Constituents: As of Now
Scientific
Queries
What?
Why?
How?
And miles to go
Dark energy or cosmological constant?
What is dark energy?
Why is cosmological constant so small?
What is dark matter?
Who governs fast expansion at the beginning?
How were stars, galaxies etc formed?
Gravitational waves: yes or no?
How to match precise observational data?
How to discriminate a model from others?
Many more…..
