Einstein’s Gravity: Black Holes, Dark Matter and Gravitational Lensing

Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 24 June 2016
Astronomers, scientists, physicians, and curious minds are welcome to sit in as Professor Stuart Wyith presents a free public lecture on the relationships between gravity, black holes, and galaxy formation through Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity. First published in 1915, Einstein theorised that mass distorts space-time resulting in the effects of gravity. Professor Stuart Wyithe will discuss gravitational lensing, black holes and the gravity waves which were detected in 2016 and the ways in which they act as evidence of the existence of black holes as well as super-massive black holes. The lecture will be given at the Melbourne School of Design.
