 SCI's London Group in partnership with UCL's Chemical Physical Society

UCL, London

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity is possibly the most perfect intellectual achievement in modern physics. Anything that involves gravity, the force that powers everything on the largest, hottest or densest of scales, can be explained by it.

In this lecture, Ferreira will describe its complicated history, some of the characters who developed it and will try to convince you that something fantastic is bound to happen in the next few years...
