Notes

The First Cosmic Second was by far the most interesting and frenetic time in the physical history of the cosmos.  Almost immediately the Universe started to expand much faster than the speed of light and to cool down as its density dropped.  The forces of gravity and electric charge quickly materialized.  We shall explore our first cosmic second, the most eventful micromoment of cosmic history, and learn why we aren’t ready to explore our origins before 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 second.
