This applet explains the principles of Relativity based on Lorentzian and Galilean spacetime. The user can control the boost/Velocity. The applet will display the spacetime diagram for an inertial observer traveling with that velocity. The mouse tracks the Spacetime Diagram's (t,x) coordinates. It also covers topics like the twin paradox, time dilation and the clock effect.
