General Relativity: Without the Math

General Relativity is the brainchild of Albert Einstein, the theory that cemented his fame. It gave us black holes, space time dilation, and gravitational waves. It also launched a whole field of physics that still befuddles people to this day. Although the mathematics of attacking this theory is often very difficult, in this new student-run lecture series from the UW Physics Students' Association, the math is eliminated in favour of the concepts.

This lecture series is explicitly geared towards first year physics students and non-physics majors!
