How To Teach Relativity To Your Dog
Years before Yuri Gagarin became the first person journey into space, the first sentient beings to explore this final frontier were, in fact, dogs. And yet, they know surprisingly little about physics. Chad Orzel, professor of physics at Union College in upstate New York, hopes to redress this. In his book, How To Teach Relativity To Your Dog, Orzel describes conversations he's had with his best friend, Emmy, on the nature of time and space, the Big Bang, the properties of black holes, and the ultimate fate of the Universe.
On tonight's Big Science, we ask what lessons such canine discourses have for the the rest of us. That's tonight at 9pm London time, on Resonance 104.4 FM.
