Science typically advances in increments, but 2017 saw a huge leap as astronomers threw open a new window to the universe. That was just one story in a bustling year for science, and for Perimeter. Here’s a recap of the year’s highlights.

 
 
 
 
 

Perimeter Institute launches the Centre for the Universe, a global focal point for research into key questions in cosmology. 

 
 
 
 
 

An Honorary Fellowship from the Institute of Physics is among a number of recent acknowledgements from the science community for Neil Turok. 

 
 
 
 
 

A new model of quantum cosmology shows how this universe might have been born from the one before it – while avoiding the broken physics of the big bang singularity. 

 
 
 
 

The Perimeter Opportunity

Great moments in science require great work  and great support.

 

Neil Turok wins prestigious Tate Medal from the American Institute of Physics, donates prize money to African Institute for Mathematical Sciences.

 
 
 
 

Hunting for Common Ground

Experimentalists and theorists gather at Convergence to explore shared unknowns.

A New Golden Age

A hundred years ago in Berlin, Albert Einstein finally homed in on the definitive version of general relativity, his spectacular explanation of the law of gravity.
