Physics - Saturday Physics for Everyone

Einstein Matters

In 1905 and again in 1915, a young office clerk put forth several revolutionary ideas that shook the foundations of physics. Since then, scientific predictions that stem form Albert Einstein's theories have been found to be true through experiments and observations, including the idea of esoteric black holes and the long-sought-after gravitational waves. Come join Nico in a journey to discover the most extreme phenomena in the Universe, merging black holes and colliding neutron stars, as we attempt to discover if Einstein is still right.
