Gravity

Gravity
Saturday, 13th April 2024
In 1915, Albert Einstein published his theory of general relativity, which postulated a link between gravity, space and time. One hundred years later, in September 2015, one of the last elusive predictions of the theory was finally confirmed with the first experimental discovery of gravitational waves. In this talk, Dr. Eloisa Bentivegna will review general relativity's history to date and venture to look ahead into the next one hundred years.Tickets cost £5, refreshments are provided and donations will be gratefully received. Booking essential. To reserve your place contact PAT on 07855 755859 or by email at patbarlow@libraryfriendsswish.org.uk
