This talk will begin with a look at the objects that we see around us in the Universe today (planets, stars, galaxies ...) before discussing how we believe the Universe got to be this way and how we know. In particular I will describe experiments that we in Maynooth are involved with to observe the radiation left over from the Big Bang.
