In this advanced science course, mass and energy—not to mention their intrinsic relationship—are at the forefront. Like Einstein himself, you’ll examine thought experiments concerning the union of space and time, spacetime.
These will take you from hunting on the high seas to the far-flung future for a round of (wholly theoretical) laser tag as Brilliant breaks down these big, weighty concepts into fun, bite-sized chunks. Heck, you may even throw a clock or two!
From understanding how frames of reference influence measurement and the Galilean transformation to the propagation of light and the spacetime diagram, Special Relativity helps you build your own scientific framework for interpreting physical theories concerning high speeds and energies—again, just like Einstein.
You can begin this exciting journey into the realm of non-Newtonian thinking right now at Brilliant.org. So don’t let this amazing offer get lost in the luminiferous aether!
