Ce module présente les grands concepts liés à notre compréhension actuelle de l'Univers, de sa structure et de son évolution.

Ce module s'intéresse aux deux grandes forces fondamentales nécessaires pour décrire notre Univers sur de grandes échelles, à savoir la gravitation et l'interaction électromagnétique. Il se focalise en particulier sur la description contemporaine de la gravitation, à savoir la théorie de la relativité générale, et les différents tests qu'elle a subis.

Ce module s'intéresse aux grandes structures du cosmos : comment les étudie-t-on ? comment sont-elles nées à partir de l'Univers primordial ? que pouvons-nous apprendre sur la composition de l'Univers en les étudiant ? Nous savons ainsi décrire notre Univers de façon remarquablement précise, à condition d'introduire des composantes inattendues, l'énergie sombre et la matière sombre.
