relevancy of maths to astronomy and space sciences without actually
using too much maths.
Eddington, Chandrasekhar and Einstein have each made immense
to the the theories of stars and black holes. We will look at their
and how they used the power of mathematics. This will be done in an
non-technical manner. We wil also focus on recent astronomical
images that underping their work"
