Newtonian mechanics and Gravitation were very successful theories for more than two centuries until the creation by Einstein of Special Relativity in 1905 and General Relativity in 1915. The lecture highlights the physical basis underlying these remarkable developments and the new insights they implied for our notions of space and time.
