The Special Theory of Relativity was well explained with great examples and a very logical sequence.
The General Theory was recognized by the author to be less convincing. It was. I was frustrated especially by his example of the light experiment in a freely-falling elevator where he seemed to equate the bending of the light passing through the elevator's slot to gravity, but failed to connect it to the velocity of the elevator which would dictate how much time the light had to get to the other side. I hope the author is reading this.
The quantum physics part started well but became too involved considering the latest discovered bits. In the end I had no idea of what bit of matter was related or a part of another. Less bits would would probably have been better.
It was worth the effort.
If you think you know about relativity think again, very well presented.

The professor should explain more, and slow down his approach to the subject. I'd hoped to get more insight into the space/time concept.Published 5 days ago by William Moulder
