  1. Gravitational waves

    Course Date: Thu 1 Nov 2018
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    In this course, we examine what precisely is meant by a gravitational wave, its theoretical significance, how such waves are produced and detected, and the implications of their detection for physics. We will see how the recent detection of gravitational waves confirms long-held theoretical predictions, and offers a completely new method of observing the distant universe.

  2. The physics of time

    Course Date: Sun 2 Dec 2018
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    We'll explore the concept of time in everyday life, using the theories of special and general relativity. We'll investigate its nature in the quantum world zooming out to the large scale Universe.
