DOTliveplanetarium: "Chasing Einstein" (EN)

When:Sa 09-11-2019 20:00 - 22:00
Where:DOT, Vrydemalaan 2, 9713 WS Groningen

Join us for an exclusive screening and live discussion of "Chasing Einstein": a thrilling documentary that follows leading scientists, including Nobel Laureates, on the brink of paradigm-shifting discoveries that have the potential to drastically change the way we see the universe.

Einstein's theory of relativity has been the dominant narrative of astrophysics for a century, but what do we do when it can no longer answer all of our questions? Now, 100 years later physics is at a crossroads. The search for dark matter will either confirm Einstein’s theory or disrupt a century of physics. Travel behind the scenes to some of the most extraordinary experiments ever created, including LIGO, CERN, and XENON-1T. You don't need a PhD in rocket science to let yourself be carried away by the fascinating quest depicted in Chasing Einstein.

After the screening, there will be a live discussion with the scientists who play leading roles in the documentary, including CERN physicist James Beacham and observational cosmologist Margot Brouwer.
