Blew my mind. ( )

Clear explanations of both of Einstein's theories, and why they are so important. Reading the 1979 version also gives a startling picture of how far our knowledge has advanced. ( )

Excellent explanation of general and special relativity. Calder does something no else does and starts with general relativity, which seems weird at first but actually makes sense (since special relativity is the "special" case).

Galaxies, stars, planets and now spaceships rush about the universe, and we have a sense of time passing because the positions of objects change.

Question: If there's no
objective space, please explain
what I'm sitting in.

Photons wing through space
with constant velocity...
if you're inertial.
