Einstein Light

This multimedia site is divided into five sections: Galileo, Maxwell, Einstein, Time Dilation and E=mc2. Each module is a one-minute (or less!) film clip on a major player or principle of the spacetime game. Hosted by physicist Joe Wolfe, the movies offer quick overviews and 3D animations, plus links to more in-depth articles on the topic at hand.
