Science & Cocktails – Hiranya Peiris

The Universe: a detective story

Science & Cocktails præsenterer en uforglemmelig aften med kosmolog Hiranya Peiris, som vil tage os med dybt ind i universet, Big Bang og de enorme stukture som vi kan se i det store rum. Køb en cocktail og lyt til musik af ROSYAN.

Science & Cocktails is proud to present an episode with cosmologist superstar Hiranya Peiris, the woman who has won many medals and prizes for her discoveries about the nature of our universe. Hiranya will dive deep into the universe, the Big Bang and the enormous structures that we can see out there in vast space. And yes, you can drink cocktails while going through this journey back in time until when it all began. Before the talk, ROSYAN will be playing her cello and exploring the interface between the acoustic and electronic world, as well as the visual element in an auditory context. After the talk, Jonas Visti plays records from his ever-growing vinyl collection.

What have we learned about the universe? How have we learned it? What new mysteries have been uncovered? How are cosmologists going about solving those new mysteries? Can we ever probe what lies beyond the observable universe?

Modern fundamental physics contains ideas just as revolutionary as those of Copernicus or Newton; ideas that may radically change our understanding of the world; ideas such as extra dimensions of space, or the possible existence of other Universes. Testing these concepts requires enormous energies, far higher than what is achievable by the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and in fact, beyond any conceivable Earth-bound experiments.

However, at the Big Bang, the Universe itself performed the ultimate experiment and left clues and evidence about what was behind the origin of the cosmos as we know it, and how it is evolving. And the biggest clue is the afterglow of the Big Bang itself.

In the past decade we have been able to answer age-old questions accurately, such as how old the Universe is, what it contains, and its destiny. Along with these answers have also come many exciting new questions. Hiranya will unravel the detective story, explaining what we have uncovered, and how we know what we know.

Event held in English.

This event has the generous support of the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

Hiranya Peiris (Bio)

Professor of Astrophysics in the Astrophysics Group in the Dept. of Physics and Astronomy at UCL and the Director of the UCL Cosmoparticle Initiative which brings together researchers in the Astrophysics and High Energy Physics Groups with space scientists from the Mullard Space Science Laboratory. She currently spends half of her time as Director of the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics in Stockholm. She was one of 27 scientists who received the Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics in 2018 for their “detailed maps of the early universe.”. She has received multiple awards including the Eddington Medal, the Max Born Medal, the Göran Gustafsson Prize in Physics, the Fred Hoyle Medal amongst many others.

Rosanna Lorenzen is a Danish/Iranian composer, musician, and sound artist. She has performed in many different places and formats, both in Denmark and abroad, including Reykjavík, Berlin and Hull, and done several collaboratins with, among others, Karsten Pflum and Anna Katrin Egilstrøð.
ROSYAN is the pseudonym for her solo project, where she explores the meeting between the acoustic and electronic world, as well as the visual element in an auditory context. With her cello in the lead role, she moves between ambient sound collages to more rhythmic structures, and continuously balances between improvisation and predetermined form, in which she interacts with the instrument and its possibilities. Field recordings and live looping includes what you can meet in ROSYANs organic and atmospheric soundscapes.

Jonas Visti (Bio)

For the last 7 years, Jonas Visti has flourished as a versatile figure on the Danish music scene, whether it is in the form of his hosting of DR’s P8 Jazz, as a DJ at the country’s venues and clubs, sound curator at the Statens Museum for Kunst or as a conference organizer at various festivals around the country.
In addition, through many trips to the corners of the world, he has an ever-growing vinyl collection, which will sooner or later wind up tight, but lovingly on your emotional register in the warmest way.
