Proving Einstein Right: a talk by Prof Ian Morison - 14th August
Proving Einstein Right A very gentle introduction to Einstein’s theories and how, for over a century, astronomers, including those at Jodrell Bank, have been testing them to the limit. The recent direct detection of gravitational waves has further shown that so far nothing has hinted that they might not be true – even though we know that at the heart of a Black Hole his theories must break down.

Tuesday, 14th August 2018 at 19:30. Frossard Lecture Theatre, Candie Gardens. Free admission.

La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. 125 years later, this is as much true as it was then and the Société is the second largest landowner after the States of Guernsey and is very active in promoting, conserving and studying all aspects of island life.
