Wright Colloquium: Gravity, the universal attraction

The 2018 edition of the Wright Colloquium will explore gravitation in all its aspects. Our speakers will discuss its use for interplanetary journeys, to the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko for example, on which a probe was successfully landed in 2014. Gravitational extremes like black holes and gravitational waves will be discussed, as will the measurement of gravitational waves in detectors for which the boldest superlatives do not suffice. And we will explore the complex links between gravitation and the quantum world. 

These themes will be the topics of five lectures given every evening of the week from 5 to 9 November, at Uni Dufour, (underground auditorium), rue Général-Dufour 24, 1204 Genève - Free entry.

Conferences are in French or English with simultaneous translation to both languages.

Sound and light show

sound and light show will be organised in Parc des Bastions in addition to the public conferences. Every evening from 29 October to 21 November, three shows of 20 minutes at 18:00, 19:00 and 20:00. Uni Bastions, park side.
