- The physics of timeCourse start date: Sat 2 Jul 2022 (and 2 other dates)
Location on this date: Keeley Street (other locations are available)Tutors: Gary RetallickWe will explore the various different conceptions of time within modern physics. The absolute time of Newtonian mechanics is contrasted with the relativistic time of Einsteinian gravity. The possibility that time is quantized, made up of discrete moments, is seen to emerge in some of the most cutting edge theories of physics, such as loop quantum gravity and string theory. The emergence of time in the big bang, the direction of time, and the possibility of time travel are all explored.
