Last week CERN enjoyed a visit of James Hartle, the Hartle in the Hartle-Hawking wavefunction. James gave a theory seminar on which i will share some remarks another time. He also gave a general audience colloqium entitled The Future of Gravity. This one i'm reporting in passing, as there is not much to report on. The colloqium was a piece about past and future tests of Einstein's general relativity.
It was a standard Google talk. It seems as if James googled for "test" , "Einstein", "gravity". The results returned by the search engine were spanning the whole spectrum of experimental efforts, from the laboratory and solar system studies of weak-field gravity, to observations of strong-gravity phenomena in astrophysical environments. One hour of pictures&names and little infortmation. Not that it was a total waste of time. The subject itself is fascinating enough, with the tremendous experimental progress going on. However, one would expect more than just hopping from one experiment to another.
Neither video nor transparencies from the CERN colloqium are available. If you're not disencouraged yet, here you can find transparencies from a somewhat similar talk given in Santa Barbara.
