"Gravity: From Falling Apples to Ripples in Space-time"

The force of gravity is something that each and every one of us experiences all the time. It's what keeps us from flying into space off the surface of the earth, and what keeps the planets in orbit around the sun. In this talk, we shall explore the concept of gravity, starting with humanity's earliest theories about how the universe works and ending with the ripples in space-time caused by inspiralling binary black holes.
