Relativity

In 1905 Albert Einstein published his first Theory of Relativity, a paper that would change physics forever. The special theory of relativity describes the relationship between space and time and states that the speed of light in a vacuum is independent of the motion of the observer, the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers. In 1915 Einstein’s theory of General Relativity expanded on this and outlined how massive objects cause a distortion in space-time which presents itself as gravity.
