Physics at the Library: Ben Still - How to Build a LEGO Universe

The Universe we observe around us today may seem complex but it is built from a just few rules and a small subset of building blocks. In How to Build a LEGO Universe we will attempt to cover the 14 billion year history from Big Bang to the periodic table of elements, in as much detail as possible, in 45 mins, using LEGO. Along this journey we will discuss the forces that guide and bind particles to interact and build new forms of matter.
