This web site contains a detailed introduction to relativity as the physics of spacetime, using the propagation of light as a unifying theme. It integrates textual explanations of relativity concepts with spacetime diagrams and animations to clarify the material. It includes a historical perspective, the basics of spacetime, special relativity, and general relativity. The approach is non-mathematical throughout.
