I had another great chat with Nasos Papadopoulos on the wonderful MetaLearn podcast.
Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity has many consequences, including the famous equation E = MC² (Energy = Mass x Speed of Light²) and the notion that measurements of space and time are relative to the observer.
In this 30-minute episode we discuss:
- Einstein's backstory and how it influenced his work
- The mechanics of the equation in a way that you can understand
- The implications of the equation for our view of the Universe
It was a lot of fun -- hope you enjoy it.
