Special Theory of Relativity In 1905, Albert Einstein began his paper on relativity of motion, by stating that absolute motion does not exist (Absolute motion is the idea that one particular object can be used as a point of reference for everything else.) In 1905, Albert Einstein began his paper on relativity of motion, by stating that absolute motion does not exist (Absolute motion is the idea that one particular object can be used as a point of reference for everything else.) An example of this is if there is a fly flying at 5 mph in a car traveling at 55 mph An example of this is if there is a fly flying at 5 mph in a car traveling at 55 mph And there is an observer on the side of the road watching the fly. And there is an observer on the side of the road watching the fly. From the side of the road, the fly looks like its speed is 55 mph From the side of the road, the fly looks like its speed is 55 mph But a passenger in the car would see the flys speed at 5 mph But a passenger in the car would see the flys speed at 5 mph Einsteins theory says: both are right, since there is no one correct point of reference Einsteins theory says: both are right, since there is no one correct point of reference

Now for the math… The relative rate of motion between a light ray (ex: the sun) and an observer (ex: an Akiba Student), is always 300,000 km/sec, and will be the same even if two different observers see it in different places. The relative rate of motion between a light ray (ex: the sun) and an observer (ex: an Akiba Student), is always 300,000 km/sec, and will be the same even if two different observers see it in different places. Thus, the idea was revolutionary because physics had previously stated that either, one of two observers was at rest, or had made an error Thus, the idea was revolutionary because physics had previously stated that either, one of two observers was at rest, or had made an error So Einstein proved that both viewpoints are correct, since no object is ever at rest. So Einstein proved that both viewpoints are correct, since no object is ever at rest.
