Special Theory of Relativity

Special Theory of Relativity

In his special theory of relativity, space and time become even crazier, and more flexible. "Your mileage may vary," and so may the time intervals you measure, depending on where and when you are. This flexibility has an analogue in the geometry of surfaces like that of a sphere - there is a curvature of space and time. Distorted space and time influence the way that material objects or light move. In fact, there is a direct connection to the cosmic interaction that holds the universe together, makes the earth orbit the sun and keeps our feet on the ground: gravity.

"People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion."
