"Deep connections between the very large -- the cosmos -- and the very small -- quarks -- have shaped the Universe we see today and entangled the agendas of particle physics and cosmology. I discuss the present state of cosmology and the big mysteries that point to new physics -- dark matter, dark energy, inflation and the baryon asymmetry of the Universe -- and the prospects for progress."
