Einstein's Theory of Relativity for Everyone
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity have stood the test of time for more than 100 years. This class will examine their development and meaning, and the differences between them. Students will review the ways in which popular media address relativity and such topics as time dilation, length contraction, the speed of light. Although these concepts are complex, relativity is an exciting and elegant subject that can be explained in a nontechnical way.
