An Introduction to Relativity

Saturday 14 March 2020, 1.30PM to 4.30pm

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!
