I had another great chat with Nasos Papadopoulos on the wonderful MetaLearn podcast.

Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity (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.
