Fireside Chat Gravity: The Reckoning

From black holes to landing a rover on Mars, gravity is the essential consideration. Gravity is not a classical force like magnetism. Newton described the behavior of objects subject to gravity, but did not describe its nature. Einstein showed mathematically that gravity is mass/energy distorting spacetime. Accordingly, gravity is now understood to be that mass-induced spacetime distortion/curvature. Please join us for an informal chat to explore the ramifications of the modern understanding of gravity and to have your questions addressed by our panelists.

with Matthew Burr, Dr. Phil Youngblood & Dr. William Wall.
