Astrophiz 46: Dr Tamara Davis “The Dark Universe”
Today we are speaking with Professor Tamara Davis from the University of Queensland. Tamara is a renowned and extensively cited cosmologist who has won numerous prizes for her research. Dr Davis talks us through our understanding of dark energy and it’s role in the accelerating expansion of our universe and what it means for the ultimate fate of our cosmos.
