What is gravity? This fundamental force is the common theme between concepts as intriguing as the Big Bang, black holes, dark energy, space-time, gravitational waves and the expansion of the Universe. If these concepts pique your interest, this free online course is for you. It doesn’t require any background in physics or mathematics, just a simple curiosity about the Universe and our place in it. Mark the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s prediction of gravitational waves The theory of gravity, Einstein’s theory of relativity, was published in 1915. This course presents in a simple manner the main ideas behind this theory, before explaining why “gravity is the engine of the Universe.” One year later, that is exactly 100 years ago, Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves. We’ll find out: • why the further you look, the more distant the past is; • how we can tell what happened just after the Big Bang; • what the dark components of the Universe are; • why we have been so impatiently expecting the discovery of gravitational waves • and what happens when you cross the horizon of a black hole. Learn with experts including a Nobel Prize-winning physicist Over six weeks, you’ll learn with Pierre Binétruy, the Director of the Paris Centre for Cosmological Physics at Paris Diderot University, as well as the cosmologist, George Smoot, who will explain the discovery that earned him the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2006.
