In 1905, Einstein published his Theory of Special Relativity, which fundamentally changed our understanding of the structure of the universe, and introduced many surprising new concepts.
In 1915, Einstein unveiled an even more radical conjecture about the universe, his General Theory of Relativity, generally considered to be one of the most spectacular chapters in the history of science, leading to exotic phenomenon like black holes and gravity waves.
Using videos, animations, and no math, we will learn about Einstein’s theories and some of the amazing experiments that confirmed them.
