14 Questions, you should (hopefully will) be able to answer after this lecture: From where do we know about the age of the universe?How are the chemical elements created?Why does the sun shine, and why so long?Why are free neutrons unstable but many atomic nuclei stable?What are fundamental particles and forces?How does application of magnetic fields provide us with pictures from inside our bodies?
