Colin Staurt on ‘How to weigh the Universe’
We’ve never left our solar system and yet we can weigh planets, stars and even galaxies stretching far across the universe. Find out how on this journey through the cosmos, taking in the latest work on exoplanets, gravitational waves, black holes, dark matter and more.
It all hinges on whether the laws of physics are the same out in space as they are here on Earth. Most astronomers believe they are, but a growing number are starting to question it, with profound consequences for the way we think about the universe we live in.
There will be a beak after the talk and then an astronomy news update from Gordon Ewen. This will be meeting held via Zoom and participation details will be sent to members a few days before the meeting.
