The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
This web site presents the fundamental concepts of Special Relativity along with some more advanced topics. The relativity postulates are used to explain consequences of the theory, such as time dilation, finite maximum speed, and the Lorentz Transformation. Images and animations are used extensively.
