Module Summary

Cosmology is the science of the whole Universe: its past history, present structure and future evolution. In this module we discuss how our understanding of cosmology has developed over time, and study the observed properties of the universe, particularly how the rate of expansion, the chemical composition, and the nature of the cosmic microwave background can be used to constrain theoretical models and obtain values for the parameters of the now standard Hot Big Bang cosmological model.
