State of the Universe VII
Amidst a flurry of fake news and flat-Earth believers (really this is apparently a thing)
I will take us through the real news that mattered this year, from the youngest
galaxies ever discovered to ingredients for life seemingly everywhere and more.
This talk will be as much a test of your newsfeed as it will be your memory as you
get involved in exploring the State of the Universe.

3) Image bottom right is of the most distant galaxy ever measured GN-z11, shown in the inset, as it was just 400 million years after the Big Bang, already similar in size to our Milky Way now but at a time with the Universe itself was barely a ’toddler’ in comparison to its current 13.6 billion year old age.
