Big Bang Theory: Professor David Christian Retells the History of the Universe
Why We Recommend it
In this talk, Professor David Christian takes his audience on a journey through the entire history of the universe: from the Big Bang to the 21st century.
Christian is an eminent scholar who established a program to describe human history in the context of very large time scales from cosmology and astronomy, covering the almost 14 billion years since the Big Bang. He began teaching his first course, what he described as ‘Big History’, in 1989.
He is most commonly known for his 2011 TED Talk, The History of Our World in 18 Minutes, which has been watched over 8 million times.
This talk is organised by the Royal Geographic Society and Jacada Travel.
