Adult education courses in Astronomy, Einstein's Relativity and Quantum Physics. Presented by Dr Paul Payne, with over 30 years teaching experience, using unique dynamic graphics. Complex concepts are made understandable through powerful visualisations. The courses take you from an introduction to the night sky to delving into the wonderful universe described by modern physics. The courses are free of mathematics except for " The Theorem of Pythagoras in Physics" and "HSC Relativity" .

## Exploring the Heavens

## Astronomical Concepts

## Understanding Relativity

## Understanding Quantum

## The Theorem of Pythagoras in Physics

^{2}+ b

^{2}= c

^{2}

It appears everywhere in physics. It is applied in Newtonian mechanics, momentum, Einstein's Relativity, wave theory, the probability of states in quantum mechanics and much more. Over 5 evenings we explore the many ways to interprete this ancient, simple theorem and explore how it gives us profound insights into universe.

## HSC Relativity

- the two axioms of Relativity, time dilation, lose of simultaneity and length contraction.
- mass, momentum and energy

cost: $15 per student per session ( teacher free )

## Astro-Update

## Q & A

*Introduction to the Presentation*

To end off 2022 I thought a casual Q&A session would be appropriate as we approach the festive season. I am sure many of you have a question or two that begs answering, or at least one that will stimulate some discussion.

I am happy to field questions on the night, or if you send any through before 7:00 pm Thursday I can give it some thought and put some graphics together to make my response more engaging.

Thank you for keeping Astro-Update alive during 2022, I thoroughly enjoy them, and I look forward to seeing you in February 2023.

Time : 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Date : Thursday, 15 December
