NewScientist Events
Instant Expert - Relativity and Beyond
Instant Expert – Relativity and Beyond / 29 October 2016 / Book tickets

Only 10 days to go! Join us on a 13.8-billion-year journey through the cosmos at Instant Expert – Relativity and Beyond. At this one-day masterclass you will learn directly from six leading experts in the fascinating fields of cosmology and relativity, including:
David Kaiser
Physicist and historian of science at MIT
The general theory of relativity is Albert Einstein's most enduring scientific legacy – it's physicists' reigning explanation for gravity, and the basis for nearly all our thinking about the cosmos. Physicist and author of How the Hippies Saved Physics, David Kaiser will introduce the revolutionary theory, and place it firmly in context of both its time and ours.

Tasneem Zehra Husain
Physicist and writer
Einstein knew the general theory of relativity was not the final world; that a 'Theory of Everything' would encompass all we know. By stitching general relativity and quantum mechanics together, string theory accomplishes this seemingly impossible task. Tasneem Zehra Husain will discuss what string theory is, how it resolves the violent conflict between quantum mechanics and general relativity, and more.
