Summary
Relativity and quantum physics touch the very basis of physical reality, altering commonsense notions of space and time, cause and effect. Both have reputations for complexity, but the basic ideas behind relativity and quantum physics are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. The essence of relativity in a single sentence: The laws of physics are the same for all observers in uniform motion. Relativity and quantum physics are the gateway to understanding the latest in science news - theories about time travel, string theory, black holes, space telescopes, particle accelerators, and other cutting-edge developments
