About this event

Our modern understanding of Space and Time has evolved since Galileo's time from a simple intuitive flat geometry to that of the curved spacetime envisaged by Einstein. This presentation explains how our understanding has developed through the contributions made by Newton, Maxwell and Einstein. Numerous experimental results are presented, culminating in the detection of gravitational waves in 2016, all of which have been key to placing the theory on such a solid foundation. The material is presented chronologically and, although some mathematical content is unavoidable, the presentation aims to explain the principles with a minimum of mathematics to a non-specialist audience.
