It’s never too early to start exploring big ideas. Einstein’s theory of relativity is one of the cornerstones of modern physics but it requires a total rethink of our notions of time and space. Strange things happen in a relative universe: length and time are not fixed and depend upon your frame of reference. A period of time for someone on Earth that lasts for hundreds of years may only be a couple of hours for someone travelling in a rocket close to the speed of light. This captivating companion to My First Book of Quantum Physics introduces complex science to children through engaging illustrations and amusing text. They will learn how space and time are connected and how the theory impacts on our world today.
