Coffee and tea will be available from 19:00. Non-members welcome.
The talk will describe current attempts to detect the "Gravity Waves" which Einstein realised in 1916 are permitted solutions of his theory of gravity.
Abstract: Since 1916 when Einstein realised that his new theory of gravity permitted wave solutions, scientists and engineers have been attempting to detect these " Gravity Waves ". A detection would be of importance to our understanding of Physics and how the four universal forces relate to one another as well as opening a completely new way for us the observe the Universe. Detectors are now operational in several countries and reaching new levels of sensitivity. A first detection may be within a few years.
