What is gravity? We feel the effects of gravity when we scuba dive, fly in a plane, or just get out of bed, but how well do we understand this “force” that affects every corner of the universe? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with CLAUDIA DE RHAM. She is a professor of theoretical physics at Imperial College London and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Her new book describes her life long passion with understanding gravity: THE BEAUTY OF FALLING: A LIFE IN PURSUIT OF GRAVITY.
