The biggest mysteries of the universe
How big is the universe? What is it made of? What happened at the Big Bang? What are dark matter and dark energy? What happens near the event horizon of a black hole? 

Modern science has opened our horizon to an unexpected cosmos: a universe filled with mysterious forms of matter and energy, and with places and events where the known laws of physics literally break down. We will embark on a journey through space and time, and discover how the biggest mysteries in the universe appear to have something in common: they sink their roots into a microcosm ruled not by gravity, but by quantum physics. We will then see how a new science, which we refer to as "multi-messenger" astronomy, may hold the keys to finally solve these mysteries, and establish a connection between the infinitely large and infinitely small.

Cosmic Crooner
Cosmic Crooner is a silver-tongued lounge lizard. Through his self-proclaimed ‘Doowop Space Pop’ there’s guarantee his orchestral tone poems and rock ’n’ roll vigour will have you swooning. Heavily inspired by classic movies, 60s and 70s music, Cosmic Crooner is no stranger to offering up a varying palette of sonic natures.

This event is an initiative by the Dutch Institute for Emergent Phenomena (DIEP) with the support of NWA Route2.

Gianfranco Bertone

Gianfranco Bertone is a Professor of Theoretical Astroparticle Physics at the Center of Excellence in Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics of the University of Amsterdam. After an MSc at the University “La Sapienza” of Rome and a PhD at the University of Oxford and the Institute of Astrophysics in Paris, he has held teaching and research positions at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the University of Padova, the Institut d’Astrophysique in Paris and the University of Zurich, before moving permanently to Amsterdam in 2011.

In 2011, together with a group of talented young faculty, Bertone contributed to establish in Amsterdam the GRAPPA center of excellence in Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics, for which he acted as Spokesperson until 2019. Since July 2019 he is the Founding Director of the European Consortium for Astroparticle Theory, which aims to bring together the European community of theoretical astroparticle physicists and cosmologists. Bertone says he strongly believes in the importance of science outreach. He has written two popular science books, and given a number of public lectures. In 2018, Bertone launched a new initiative for the communication of science, Premio Cosmos, for which he acts as president. 

Route naar Tolhuistuin

Tolhuistuin (voorheen Paradiso Noord) is gevestigd aan IJpromenade 2 in Amsterdam Noord. Vanaf Amsterdam Centraal kun je met de gratis veerpont naar de overkant, waar je na links af te hebben geslagen, tegen Tolhuistuin aanloopt. Voor clubnachten wordt de ingang aan de achterkant gebruikt (Buiksloterweg 5C), die te bereiken is via het Overhoeksplein. In het pand bevindt zich restaurant THT, dat een uitgebreide menukaart voor iedere muziekliefhebber serveert - reserveren wordt aangeraden.
