Title The evolving Universe
Description
  • The Big Bang is said to be the origin of our Universe. This free course, The evolving Universe, will help you to comprehend what happened in the moments immediately after the Big Bang and during the initial cooling period. You will also gain an understanding of how this event turned in to the Universe we live in today.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/physics-and-astronomy/the-evolving-universe/content-section-0" /> First published on Mon, 12 Mar 2012 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/science/physics-and-astronomy/the-evolving-universe/content-section-0">The evolving Universe</a>.

  • <p>This unit explores origins of the Universe by looking in detail at events immediately following the Big Bang. Starting with looking at the cooling of the very early Universe, the unit then moves on to the inflation era, the quark-lepton and the hadron era. Then the unit looks at how fundamental particles began to synthesise to form nuclei, and from here it discusses the development of larger structures like stars and galaxies. By examining closely the forces in play and the interactions of fundamental particles in these very early stages of the Universe we can begin to understand how it turned into the Universe that we live in now.</p><p>This unit is from our archive and is an adapted extract from How the universe works (S197) which is no longer taught by The Open University.
