Einstein’s Amazing Theory of Gravity: Black Holes and Novel Ideas in Cosmology

Sir Roger Penrose giving his talk ‘Einstein’s Amazing Theory of Gravity: Black Holes and Novel Ideas in Cosmology’ at ‘What’s Your Angle?’ – a mathematics festival organised in collaboration between the London Mathematical Society and the Science Museum in November 2015

Conformal cyclic cosmology and the Fermi paradox

CCCV. G. Gurzadyan, R. Penrose
Within the scheme of conformal cyclic cosmology (CCC), information can be transmitted from aeon to aeon. Accordingly, the “Fermi paradox” and the SETI programme – of communication by remote civilizations – may be examined from a novel perspective: such information could, in principle, be encoded in the cosmic microwave background. The current empirical status of CCC is also discussed.
