Our observed universe is 14 billion years old now.  If we compress these 14 billion years to one day, the whole human history corresponds to no more than a second in that day.  What happened in the evolution history of the universe?  How the universe turns into the current form from the infant universe?  How life arises in the universe?   In this talk, Dr Li Hui-Bai, Founding Member of The Hong Kong Young Academy of Sciences, and Associate Professor, Department of Physics, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Dr Wang Yi, Associate Professor, Department of Physics, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology began to speak from the origin of the universe – hot big bang cosmology and covered topics including the inflationary universe, big bang nucleosynthesis, the first light, large scale structure of the universe, the formation of galaxies and the birth of stars and planets.
