Title: What is relativity all about?

Abstract

Einstein’s theory of special relativity is one of the fascinating scientific advances of the 20th century. Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln has decided to make a series of videos describing this amazing idea. In this video, he lays out what relativity is all about… what is the entire point. And it’s not what you think. It’s not about clocks moving slower and objects shrinking. It’s about… well, you’ll have to watch to see.
