Adult Astronomy Course: Understanding Relativity

Courses beginning in December 2017 and March 2018

Comprehend the cosmos with one of Sydney Observatory’s astronomy courses, led by Dr Paul Payne. These courses are suitable for adults and senior students (years 11 and 12).

Understanding Relativity introduces the fundamental concepts of relativity, without the aid of mathematics. Dr Paul Payne uses computer graphics to develop a strong understanding of how time and space affect the physical Universe. Together you’ll look at Einstein’s development of the special and general Theories of Relativity — the century-old theories at the foundation of modern physics — and discover more about the Universe.
