View Resource sci.physics.relativity

This newsgroup is the place to discuss and ask questions on the theory of relativity. It is an open forum for discussion related to relativity and physics. The news group sci.physics.relativity will be open to discussion on all levels. It will accept talk about alternative theories and other controversial discussions about relativity which would be outside the charter of most other sci.newsgroups,...

View Resource Speed of Light

The first site offered by What Why Web is entitled Everyday Physics: What is the Speed of Light? (1) The one page site describes the definition of the speed of light, how it changes passing through various medium, its historical significance, and what symbol is used for the speed of light in a vacuum. The next site from the NOVA online Einstein Revealed Web site is called The Light Stuff (2)....

View Resource Physics and Star Trek

Created and maintained by physicist Jason Hinson, the Physics and Star Trek Web site investigates faster than light travel and subspace physics. Each topic is presented as a mix of factual information along with speculation on the author's part on how these phenomena could or could not work. Although the site consists of much text and few graphics, which may turn away some potential readers, the...

View Resource Einstein

From the American Museum of Natural History comes the online exhibit on the life and legacy of Albert Einstein. Students (who should probably be at least of high school age) can learn about Einstein's revolutionary thinking; his work with light, time, energy, and gravity; his thoughts on peace and war, on being a global citizen, and his legacy according to the museum. Although fairly brief, the...
