2007 02 Is Cosmology a Science?

For many thousands of years humans have tried to understand the nature of the Universe, and our place in it. Cosmology has historically been more akin to philosophy than science, but in recent years high precision astronomical data has allowed us to study the properties of the Universe in detail. I will describe our current understanding of the contents and evolution of the Universe before discussing the open questions which remain, and whether or not they can be answered.
