While it took a genius to figure it out the first time, the average person can understand it now...if you have the right teacher. Einstein turned over the physics that had stood for hundreds of years by chang- ing how we understand space, time and what it means to be moving. In this class you will be given a conceptual (no math) introduction to Spe- cial Relativity and the bizarre predictions it makes about the relativity of space and time and the absolute speed of light.
