The universe’s structure and history

Here are pedagogical visualisations about one part of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics. There is a  3-minute long video to show in the classroom and an interactive visualisation tool with a teacher’s guide. The visualisation tool can be used as a teacher-led lesson, or as an in-depth assignment for individual students. The visualisation tool can be paused and the teacher or the student can add notes in the slideshow with the drawing tool.
