The Spacetime Emporium website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
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.
