Einstein 101 & His Continuing Legacy
Roger Luther
Friday 16 June 2017

Friday  Jun 16th 2017 Einstein 101 & His Continuing Legacy, presented by Roger Luther.


An elementary introduction to Einstein’s contributions to modern physics, together with a brief look at the life of the man himself.  On the 101st year since he published his theory of General Relativity - spectacularly confirmed in Feb 2016 with the discovery of gravitational waves - we will look at the entire range of work of this iconic scientist.  No previous knowledge of maths or science is required!
