Coloquio de Física – Cien años de una nueva visión del espacio-tiempo: la relatividad general de Einstein

Ponente: Francisco De Zela (Sección Física PUCP) La conferencia ha sido motivada por cumplirse cien años de la publicación de la relatividad general. Tendrá un carácter introductorio, tratando de situar el aporte de Einstein en el contexto de épocas pasadas, así como de la actual. Dicho aporte trasciende el ámbito de teorías gravitatorias, proyectándose a una buena parte de la física teórica.

To Infinity and Beyond: The Accelerating Universe

Published on Jul 15, 2015

Dark energy is cosmology’s biggest mystery—an anti-gravitational force that confounds the conventional laws of physics. It makes up more than two-thirds of the cosmos, but science is still grappling to explain what dark energy actually is. In this program, top physicists search for clues to this mystery in both the earliest moments of the universe and far into the future of the cosmos.

The accelerating Universe: Nobel Laureate Brian Schmidt

Published on Aug 2, 2012

In 1998 two teams traced back the expansion of the universe over billions of years and discovered that it was accelerating. It was a startling discovery that suggests that more than 70 per cent of the cosmos is contained in a previously unknown form of matter, called Dark Energy.

En 1998, dos equipos rastrearon la expansión del universo durante miles de millones de años y descubrieron que se estaba acelerando. Fue un descubrimiento sorprendente que sugiere que más del 70 por ciento del cosmos está contenido en una forma hasta ahora desconocida de materia, llamada energía oscura.
