Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity Simply Explained

May 24, 26, 31 and June 2
Einstein revolutionized physics with Relativity. He showed how absolute space and time don’t exist, that mass and energy are two sides of the same coin and that gravity is not a spooky force acting at a distance. Not to mention E=mc squared. Here’s something to think about: If you push a book across the table, it moves across the table. If you stop pushing, it stops moving across the table. Why? Can you feel any difference in a plane at constant velocity or one at rest? How fast are you moving right now?  Understanding these questions is the first step to understanding Relativity.
