Public Lecture: Extremes of Gravity

Public lecture title: Extremes of Gravity

Speaker: Prof. Chris Fewster, University of York

Description: Curious about black holes and gravitational waves? How about wormholes, warp drives and time machines?

In this public lecture, Prof. Chris Fewster will take you on an accessible tour of the frontiers of gravity research to examine what is known and what is unknown. Some of the oddest and most extreme predictions of Einstein's general theory of relativity will make their appearance as Prof. Fewster helps us to distinguish the possible from the impossible and the science from the fiction.

About the speaker: Chris Fewster is Professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of York. He is a leading expert on quantum field theories in curved spacetimes, where some of the most extreme effects of gravity appear.
