Abstract:

How far is the furthest thing we can see? Is the universe getting bigger? What happens when you reach the edge? And what's outside? In the last few years, stunning technological advances have transformed cosmology. Once a field of theoretical speculation, it is flourishing in a golden age -- the age of Precision Cosmology. Astronomers and particle physicists have found new ways to probe the cosmos and are creating detailed maps that stretch almost all the way to the birth of time -- 13.6 billion years ago. The observable universe stands revealed as never before, in exquisite plots of size, shape, temperature and composition -- a universe full of surprises. In this film we meets the key scientists who are drawing this new map of the universe. Using an innovative graphic that reveals the scale and wonder of the universe, we travel from east to west, in to the setting sun and the wheeling cosmos, and all the way to the edge of existence, unlocking some surprising stories. Are there parallel universes beyond our own? Does our universe have an edge? There is evidence to suggest that the universe next door is already knocking ...
