A perfect theory: a biography of General Relativity

Thursday 3 December, 7pm

Pedro Ferreira, Professor of Astrophysics, University of Oxford, Author of The Perfect Theory, Imperial Alumnus.

Einstein’s theory of general relativity is possibly the most perfect intellectual achievement of modern physics. For a century now, physicists have been delving into Einstein’s theory, seeking an understanding of the history of the universe, the origin of time, and the evolution of solar systems, stars, and galaxies. The expanding universe, the light-speed barrier, black holes, wormholes, time travel - general relativity has allowed scientists’ imaginations to take flight with new possibilities, revealing a universe that is much stranger than anyone ever expected.

In this centenary year of the theory Professor Ferreira tells the story of how our present understanding of space, time, and gravity has emerged over the century.
