What is the nature of the inflation process that started the Big Bang expansion of the Universe? What is the Dark Energy that is causing that expansion to accelerate? And what is the origin of the recently discovered `fast radio bursts’ that flash on the sky 10,000 times per day? I will describe plans to build radio telescopes, with help from the Physical Sciences Lab, that are optimized to solve these three mysteries.
