SWHAS Monthly Meeting Feb 2022

February 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Time in Einstein’s Universe

By Colin Stuart

It can be wasted and killed. Spent and saved. Kept and lost. 

Time is one of life’s most perplexing mysteries. 

In the century since Einstein turned our ideas about time upside down, we know more about it than we ever have, but big questions remain. 

Can you go back and kill Hitler? 

What happens to time inside a black hole? 

Does time even really exist? 

Author Colin Stuart returns to SWHAS to explain our latest thinking in this journey through Einstein’s universe, during which you’ll meet the greatest time traveller in human history and take part in a real time travel experiment.

 

The talk is based on his latest book Time: 10 Things You Should Know, published in September 2021. Colin will have copies of his book on sale at the meeting.

 

The meeting will also include a news item of interest and a tour of the night sky.

We’re pleased to confirm that this will be a face-to-face meeting at the RMS and look forward to seeing you there.

A Zoom link will also be sent out to members before the meeting if you are unable to attend in person.
