S709: Relatively Relatable Relativity in Splash 2023 (Apr. 22, 2023)
Time isn't what you think it is. Space isn't what you think it is. Gravity isn't what you think it is. Matter isn't what you think it is (but that's out of the scope of this course go take quantum mechanics). In 1905, Albert Einstein published his theory of special relativity, explaining effects between observers moving at different velocities and phenomena of space and time. In 1915 he published his theory of general relativity, incorporating acceleration and forming a geometric theory of gravity. In 2023, I will attempt to explain both theories intuitively in 90 minutes with no mathematics beyond basic algebra.
