The beginning of the universe, for beginners – TED Ed

TodayTEDxCERN and TED-Ed have unveiled the first of 5 animated lessons specially developed by CERN scientists for TEDxCERN and brought to life by the talented animators at TED-Ed: “The beginning of the universe, for beginners.”

The lesson, which you can watch above(!) and at ed.ted.com, was conceived by CERN physicist Tom Whyntie and explains how cosmologists and particle physicists explore questions like, “How did the universe begin? How is it expanding?” by replicating the heat, energy, and activity of the first few seconds of our universe, right after the Big Bang.
