Beyond Einstein: Gravitational Rainbows

Friday, March 8, 2024

Beyond Einstein: Gravitational Rainbows. Much as a gentle mist can split light waves into beautiful rainbows, dark energy may split gravitational waves into deeply revealing gravitational rainbows. Leading researcher Claudia de Rham joins Brian Greene to explore this compelling possibility.

This program is one of three related programs, titled Beyond Einstein, that explore the wondrous implications of gravity pushed to the extreme. Renowned researchers joined Brian Greene to discuss a range of insights–from confirmed to highly speculative–that extend Einstein’s vision of reality and advance our understanding of fundamental physical laws.

This program is part of the Big Ideas series, supported by the John Templeton Foundation.
