Here is a video that I have made with a few clips from a presentation that I made recently at the West Yorkshire Astronomical Society in Pontefract, Wakefield.

The presentation titled “From Euclid to Einstein – Generalising Geometry” lasted for about an hour and walked the audience through some of the major developments in geometry over the centuries from the Ancient Greek times up to the 21st Century – from Euclid’s Postulates right up to Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and then String Theory.

Despite being based around geometry and mathematics, I made the presentation as accessible to everyone as possible – I tried to make the presentation as visual as possible and avoid getting bogged down in technicalities.

This was a fantastic opportunity for me and I am extremely grateful to all members of the West Yorkshire Astronomical Society for the chance to present to them. I hope that everyone enjoyed listening to the presentation as much as I enjoyed delivering it!!
