Descriptions Einstein et la Relativité Générale, une histoire singulière
Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity has revolutionised our understanding of gravity, space and time. Initially acclaimed, then forgotten, and now rediscovered, the adventure of this hundred-year-old theory has marked the scientific history of the 20th century. From its inception, a mathematical difficulty arose that could have nipped the theory in the bud: the Schwarzschild singularity. In the company of great international relativistic physicists, the viewer embarks on a discovery of this theory with a singular destiny. We discover a “curved” universe that proves to be even stranger than Einstein had envisioned, and harbours some objects – such as black holes – that still challenge today’s scientists.
