The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Distinguished Lecture in Astronomy
"The Dawn of Creation: The First 2 Billion Years"
Steven Beckwith, Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies, University of California, Office of the President
Modern technical wonders like the Hubble Space Telescope have made it possible to look back to a time when the universe looked very different than it does today, when the first galaxies were created and the universe developed structure seen as patterns in the galaxies apparent today. This years Sackler Lecture will look back to the first 2 billion years.
