In case you were out of Manitoba or just could not make it to the amazing talk on Dark Matter and the Expanding Universe by Dr. James Peebles, you can see the recorded version of it on our YouTube channel (link in bio).

Dr. James Peebles [BSc(Hons)/58, DSc/89] University of Manitoba, is widely recognized as one of the key architects in the field of physical cosmology.

After obtaining his Bachelor of Science (Hons) from UM in 1958, he went on to study at Princeton University where he secured his doctorate and continued his research in cosmology while teaching physics.

Dr. Peebles is currently the Albert Einstein Professor Emeritus at Princeton, and has received countless awards for his brilliant work over the course of his career, including the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1998, the Order of Manitoba in 2017, and the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2019.

He has also written five books, including his latest, Cosmology’s Century, which was released in 2020.
