The British Council is happy to host ‘Latest Science for All’- a monthly series of public lecture on contemporary science by Professor Dr Muhammad Ibrahim, an eminent professor of General Education in the ULAB university, Dhaka and physicist from the University of Dhaka. The session is open to students from class 6-12 and adults as well. It will be held at the Dhaka University campus office of the British Council.
The topic of this month is 'The inflationary universe'
It is theoretically conjectured that a split second after the big bang, the moment of the creation of space and time, the point-like universe went through a very strange process. For an extremely small fraction of a second the universe expanded at an unimaginably high speed to a size many times its original size. Then it went back to a much slower normal expansion which is going on even now, after some 14 billion years. That sudden extreme expansion for a very brief period of time is called ‘Inflation’. The marks of this inflation are everywhere in our universe today. Without this conjecture of inflation it will be impossible to explain the existence of the stars and the galaxies, our solar system, and ourselves too.
Bangla Vision, a renowned TV channel will cover the programme once in a month. In every episode of this science talk, there will have a quiz competition for the audiences based on the day’s topic and discussion. The name of the winner will be announced in the following episode.
