Relativity

How cool is our BrainPOP movie on relativity? Well, we think it’s pretty groovy, but of course it’s all relative! In the movie, Tim and Moby lay out the basics of Albert Einstein’s brilliant discoveries. The dynamic duo blast off in a spaceship to demonstrate how time isn’t as unchanging as you might think. You’ll also discover the two different types of relativity, special and general, and how each describes different elements of the universe. Plus, you’ll learn how relativity relates gravity to acceleration and why massive objects can bend the fabric space and time. Most importantly, you’ll find out the meaning of that crazy equation, E=mc2! Einstein would be so proud!
