S822: Apples to Orbits in Rainstorm Summer 2021 (Aug. 14 - 15, 2021)
What is gravity? Beneath the black holes, planetary orbits, and falling apples lies general relativity, a revolutionary theory which reveals fundamental truths about the nature of space, time, and matter. Despite the deep mathematics underlying the theory, the principles governing it can be understood in simple, albeit counterintuitive terms. We introduce general relativity through a discussion of the geometry of spacetime and how it interacts with matter and energy. The presentation is meant to be accessible and, as such, requires no physics prerequisites.
