01/06/2005: 100 years in this inertial frame of reference
Robert Prather at Signifying Nothing notes that 2005 marks the one hundredth anniversary of the publication by Albert Einstein of the papers that would introduce the world to the special theory of relativity.
I'll add that Einstein's book Relativity: The Special and the General Theory really does live up to its subtitle, "A Clear Explanation That Anyone Can Understand." (Anyone with a good grasp of algebra, I'll add.)
