One Hundred Years of General Relativity - The Enduring Legacy of Albert Einstein

Abstract

As we celebrate 100 years of General Relativity I shall discuss Einstein’s enduring legacy. The Einsteinian revolution changed forever the way we think about spacetime and the universe and still shapes current research at the frontiers of fundamental physics and cosmology. I shall review the current status of Einstein’s theory and the ongoing attempts to construct a quantum theory of gravity and to unify all the forces of nature.
