2009 Terry Lectures: Stardust Plus Time Equals Us
Posted by the YaleUniversity Youtube channel

Full of dark matter collapsing the galaxies into being and dark energy accelerating them apart, the evolving universe, according to 2009-10 Terry lecturers JOEL R. PRIMACK and NANCY ELLEN ABRAMS, has turned out to be wildly more interesting than the image of an empty space scattered with celestial objects. To the extent that people around the world accept scientific reality, they argue, we have grounds for agreement for the first time on a shared creation story based on modern cosmology and biology.
