The proof for many scientific theories can be found out in the universe and this is particularly true of Einstein's theories of relativity. Danny Thomas was a child of the Apollo missions and developed an early interest in space, astronomy and science, which led to a degree in Physics from Nottingham University in the 1980s. Over the years, he has maintained his interest in astronomy and physics, combining them in talks to astronomy societies and other interested groups. A key aim for his talk on Special and General Relativity is to explain the theories in a logical way to make the fundamentals accessible to a wide audience. The talk uses animations and graphics to explain the concepts, avoiding complex maths and often confusing paradoxes that arise from travelling close to light speed. No prior knowledge is required for this talk which will explain how we all experience relativity every day!
Danny comments that he followed the Apollo missions as a child, and developed a very early interest in space, astronomy and science, which led to a degree in Physics from Nottingham University. He is on the committee of Farnham Astronomical Society and SAGAS, the Southern Area Group of Astronomy Societies and helps take care of the Patrick Alexander Observatory in Aldershot.
