Public Lecture – Prof Rachel Webster, Nobel Lecturer 2019
November 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm
“The Origins of the Universe” – Prof Rachel Webster, University of Melbourne
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2019 was awarded “for contributions to our understanding of the evolution of the universe and Earth’s place in the cosmos” with one half to James Peebles “for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology”, the other half jointly to Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz “for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star.” Every year, the Australian Institute of Physics, Victoria branch, invites a distinguished speaker to present the Nobel Lecture in Melbourne. The AIP Nobel Lecturer is selected due to their knowledge in the same field as that for which the prize was awarded.
Professor Webster has taught and researched Astrophysics for over 20 years in Australia, UK and Canada.
