Students are often not exposed to the main ideas of general relativity until relatively late in their education, due to the mathematical complexity of the theory. In particular, the Einstein field equation is generally presented in a way that obscures its geometrical meaning under a thicket of indices. I will show an index-free geometrical approach to the equation that is suitable for students unfamiliar with tensor calculus.

MoEDAL is a pioneering experiment designed to search for anomalously ionizing messengers of new physics, such as magnetic monopoles or massive (pseudo-)stable charged particles, which are predicted to exist in a plethora of models beyond the Standard Model. MoEDAL started data taking in 2015 at the LHC at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV.
