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. This achievement crowned a century of mind and light bending theoretical results, and their galvanising observational confirmation.

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 (students £2), refreshments are provided and donations will be gratefully received.
