Humankind has always wondered about the fundamental contents, evolution and fate of our Universe. Fortunately, observations over the last couple of decades have provided us with many of the answers, namely that it was very small in the past, it is expanding at an accelerating rate now and that 95% of its contents is dark, i.e. cannot be observed directly. Yet important questions remain as to how our Universe began, if indeed there was a beginning, what the constituents of dark matter and dark energy are, and what is its ultimate fate. One would also like to understand why the Universe is incredibly uniform in all directions and why we have roughly equal amounts of dark matter and dark energy at the current time. In this talk, I will explain what is known about our Universe and present some new ideas to address the unknowns.
