Lecture by Christophe Galfard

Christophe Galfard (France) is a Doctor in Physics from the University of Cambridge, where he studied under Stephen Hawking. His concern is to bring science to people without specialized knowledge, and he has presented television programmes and offers answers about this matter on his website. His latest book, How to Understand E=MC2, is an exciting look at relativity theory. The theory tells us that energy can be turned into mass and mass into energy. It explains why we can split the atom and why the stars shine. It also tells us that space and time are not what they seem, and neither is our planet, and neither are we.
