Event description

Description

Newton’s law of gravitation successfully accounted for many phenomena in the solar system. Einstein developed an improved theory of gravity called general relativity to overcome the inconsistencies with Newton’s theory. Despite the success of general relativity, the origin of the universe and black holes are not fully explained by this theory. A new theory of gravity is expected to provide the missing details and would be regarded as the ultimate achievement in physics. This lecture explores aspects of these three periods of the history of gravity.
