Abstract

Our ability to model cosmological observations has reached an awesome level, a tour de force of observational innovation, sophisticated statistical inference, and delicate numerical computation. There’s little doubt that the Standard Cosmological Model will stand the test of time. But what has it told us and what is still missing? What are the prospects for learning particle physics and condensed matter from cosmology? And what can the path we’ve taken to reach this point tell us about where it might lead?
