Theory of Relativity
Transcript of Theory of Relativity
Space, matter, and time are dependent on each other GPS systems Without the theory of relativity, our GPS systems wouldn't work. This is because relative to reference points on Earth, a GPS satellite moves fast. Nowhere near the speed of light, but fast. Because of this, a clock would move slower aboard the satellite. If this wasn't taken into account, the GPS wouldn't work right Einstein's Impact Einstein gave people the idea that there is more than one truth depending on your perspective People were more motivated to use education to their advantage after seeing Einstein's climb to the top Einstein used his fame and influence to speak his mind about issues such as nuclear warfare, education, and human rights Problems Caused by the Theory of Relativity The atomic bomb would not be possible without the knowledge of mass and energy's equivalence Conclusion Einstein’s new way of thinking was a solid foundation for new scientists to build off of. Without it, we wouldn't have nearly as much understanding of the universe we live in, and we wouldn't have unlocked capabilities that before were unknown. He changed the world in more ways than one by not being afraid to make guesses far away from what is expected. Works Cited Albert Einstein. Myanmars. N.p., n.d.

About Einstein Albert Einstein is one of the most famous scientists of all time, mostly due to his breakthrough theory of relativity. On March 14, 1879, Einstein was born in Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany. He worked in a Swiss patent office after receiving his Swiss citizenship and his diploma. When Einstein saw problems in Newtonian mechanics, he thought it was his job to figure out answers for future scientists to build off of (Nobelprize.com).
