'Are there other Universes?'

'Are there other Universes?'

On the afternoon of May 3rd, Colin Stuart, an Astronomy author and science writer, came to talk to Radley physicists and others, in the Coffee Shop, about the possibility of there being other universes. Colin has written for the The Guardian, The Observer, the  New Scientist and the European Agency among many others.

Colin started talking about the 1920 debate between Heber Curtis and Harlow Shapley. This was about them disagreeing on whether there was one galaxy or many galaxies in the universe. Colin then went onto discussing the common theories of the Big Bang.

The talk kindled many student's interest on this particular part of Astronomy, as we all were thoroughly intrigued about what Colin had to offer.
