An End To Steady State Theory20151127

2015 marks the centenary of the publication of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity changing our understanding of space and time forever. Turning to science for inspiration, three writers explore the notion of relativity from their own unique viewpoint in this specially commissioned series for Radio 4.

Taking Einstein's theory as their inspiration, three writers explore the notion of relativity, taking us to the very edges of space and time, through the prism of sibling rivalry, a flight from war and the daydreams of a lost little boy.

In Jo Baker's 'An End to Steady State Theory' a young physicist clings to scientific rigour as the world he knows collapses and contracts.
