Explains Einstein’s theory of relativity using animation to illustrate the basic concepts. Discusses the philosophical framework behind Einstein’s ideas - the theory that physical reality is independent...

Surveys some of the important concepts in relativity by providing an introduction to the topics of relative velocity, addition of velocities, the constancy of the velocity of light, time dilation, muon...

Examines Einstein’s theoretical prediction that light from a star could be bent when passing close to the sun, and recounts the quantitative confirmation of this prediction during the 1919 eclipse of the...

Einstein used the theory of relativity in conjunction with the universal constancy of the speed of light to unify space and time in a way that provided new descriptions and insights to physical phenomena....

To Newton it was only an isolated fact that the effects of gravity could be mimicked in an accelerating frame but to Einstein this principle of equivalence was the clue to a new theory of space time and...

Deals with time dilation and length contraction in special relativity. The topic is then discussed by way of COSMIC and CERN muon decay and the twin paradox.

One of the predictions of Einstein’s theory of general relativity is that objects that ‘black holes’ may exist in the universe and that through discoveries and techniques of observation one may be able...

Documentary honouring Einstein’s 100th birthday. Explains Einstein’s ideas to the layman. Among the scientists taking part are Prof Roger Penrose, Prof John Wheeler who knew Einstein, and Irwin Shapler....

Side 1: Discusses the argument which led Einstein from Newton’s laws to his special theory of general relativity. Side 2: Considers developments in this century of man’s picture of the universe from its...

A discussion considering the properties and theories of light and how their study led to the special theory of relativity. Einstein’s mass-energy relation is also discussed.
