With Phil Lazzar, Enthusiast
If this is your first exposure to relativity, or if you took the instructor’s last class, this will be both a good introduction as well as a review. Topics include: Galileo’s Principle of Relativity; the Relativity of Simultaneity; Time Dilation; Length Contraction; and the Twin’s “Paradox.” Questions are encouraged.
THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELED.
Although Phil Lazzar has no formal physics training, he has put in the time to learn this topic and has enjoyed sharing what he has learned by teaching it to the general public for the last 10 years. What he likes about this topic is that it shows us that how things look to be is not necessarily how they actually are, and that these concepts are counter-intuitive.
