An Introduction to Relativity

Saturday 11 July 2020, 10.00AM to 14:30

In this course we will look at the weird and wonderful behaviour of space and time through the filter of Einstein’s landmark theory of General Relativity. We will discuss the range of ways in which Einstein’s enduring theory has been tested, from mundane applications such as GPS up to observations of the most extreme events in the universe: colliding black holes. This course is for beginners, so you won’t need any prior maths or physics experience!

So we can continue to support our students, we are working towards putting this course online, by setting up live seminars that students can join through Zoom - a tool for online meetings that is similar to making video calls.

The course will be split into two sessions to better support an online format. 

Students joining our online courses would need a reliable broadband connection, and access to a computer, laptop or tablet with sound and a microphone.
