Abstract: You don't need a degree in Astrophysics to attend this one. Find out how the planets stay in orbit around the Sun. Discover the mysteries of General Relativity and the inner workings of the Universe.

Bio: Mary Adam is an Astronomy educator at the Adelaide Planetarium and a lecturer at the University of South Australia where she teaches a course called Astrophysics: An Introduction. Mary has studied Astronomy, physics and Indigenous astronomy through the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia and the ANU, and is currently studying planetary atmospheric science through Leeds University in the UK. Her passion and love of Astronomy started at a young age when she discovered that the majority of stars had Arabic names which was the language spoken at home due to her Phoenician heritage.
