Summary
What happened at the beginning of the universe? Was the big bang the real origin? Is our universe unique? Are its basic features determined by mathematical laws or historical accidents? What does its future look like? Is it a one-off event or does it evolve through cycles? In this video from the 2011 Falling Walls Conference, hear Jean-Luc Lehners lecture on the relatively new field of string cosmology, which tackles these kinds of seminal questions about our universe. His research team at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics is studying and developing cosmological theories, such as inflationary cosmology and the theory of the cyclic universe, within the context of string theory. If successful, this new frame of research will provide a unified description of nature and connect the dots between fundamental theory and cosmological experiments and observations
