Our Universe was created in 'The Big Bang' and has been expanding ever since. Professor Schmidt will describe the vital statistics of the Universe, including its size, weight, shape, age, and composition. He will also try to make sense of the Universe's past, present, and future - and describe what we know and what we do not yet know about the Cosmos.
