A visual demonstration of the effects of Einstein’s relativity.

This video demonstrates the effects of Einstein’s special relativity on objects that move at high velocities. More particularly, it visualizes the Lorentz transformation.

The video shows a 3-dimensional view containing 2 dimensions of space and one dimension of time. This view is used to demonstrate the difference between classical physics and Einstein’s relativity, and why the latter was necessary to understand experimental results.
