General Relativity 2  Gravity is a Curvature Speaker(s): Michael Burns
Abstract: Spacetime tells matter how to move, and matter tells spacetime how to curve.
Learning Outcomes: • Why gravity can be seen as a curvature of spacetime. • That Einstein’s field equations describe how matter curves spacetime. • How Sir Arthur Eddington verified Einstein’s theory of general relativity by measuring the change in position of stars during a solar eclipse.
