A mesmerising tapestry of cosmic events stretching over the past 13.8 billion years and even further into the future have shaped the existence we have come to know. But are secrets masked in the future of the universe? And how are scientists able to study the cosmos in all its glory, past, present and future?

Join Professor of Cosmology and science communicator Andrew Pontzen as he uncovers how intricate computer codes have unlocked our understanding of the universe – from galaxies and black holes to the very essence of matter itself. Simulations have also revolutionized our understanding of the cosmos, shedding new light on the universe's multifaceted complexities. They are the windows through which we peer into the hidden dimensions of space, guiding us through a journey from the phenomenon of cosmic redshift, which unveiled the universe's accelerating expansion, to the ethereal concept of dark matter, a substance that traverses solid rock as if it were a ghostly apparition.

But of course, none of these breakthroughs would be possible without the tireless efforts of scientists, whose brilliant minds persist to push the boundaries of knowledge. Join Andrew on a journey through space and time, with science, simulations and unrelenting human curiosity as your guides.
