Adult Astronomy Course: Understanding Relativity

Duration: 2.5 hours
Workshop
30 August 2018, 6–8.30pm Sydney Observatory Book Tickets

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.

The 6-week course takes place from 6–8.30pm weekly and the available course is:

  1. Thursdays from 30 August to 4 October 2018
  2. Tuesdays from 30 October to 27 November 2018
