Outreach Resources

String theories present different views about the possible unification of the four fundamental forces.

Following Professor Hawking's example of democratising science, we are developing outreach materials for the greater public to learn about the Origins of the Universe, including information on black holes, string theory, M-theory, the cosmic microwave background and the structure of the Universe.


The CTC's outreach material, for those people who want to understand cosmology, but don't have a PhD in theoretical physics.
