Talk Summary

Everything that we can ever see — all of the people and planets and stars and galaxies — makes up only a tiny fraction of the Universe. The rest is forever dark, emitting and absorbing no light at all. In this talk, Dr Nick Bate will explain how astronomers use gravitational lensing (“Einstein’s telescope”) to reveal these hidden parts of the Universe.
