Cosmologists have now come to a detailed understanding of what our Universe was like as a child (400,000 years after the Big Bang) and what it is like as an adult (13.8 billion years later). But what was our Universe like as a teenager, when the very first stars and galaxies formed? Our speaker, Dr. Adrian Liu, will describe current efforts to use radio telescopes to make pictures of the teenage Universe. He will present a “sneak preview” of breakthrough results that will enlighten and excite us in the next few years.
