Event description

Description

Tickets are now on sale for our second Onslow Lecture when Jim Al-Khalili will speak about this exciting area of science. At school we all learn about gravity as one of the fundamental forces of nature, described by Newton hundreds of years ago. Even Einstein, who showed that gravity isn't actually a force at all, but rather the shape of space and time themselves, didn't really shake us from our complacency. Things are coming to a head. We still do not have a proper theory that connects gravity to the other three forces in the Universe, gravitational mysteries like dark matter and dark energy have not yet been solved by physicists. We have black holes and gravitational waves and study the origins and destiny of our entire universe, and yet there's that nagging sense that something fundamental is missing.
