This short offers a brand new manner of introducing relativity thought, during which difficult relativistic results reminiscent of time dilation and Lorentz contraction are defined ahead of the dialogue of Lorentz-transformation. The suggestion of relativistic mass is proven to contradict the spirit of relativity conception and the real value of the mass-energy relation is contrasted with the preferred view of it. the writer discusses the dual paradox from the perspective of either siblings. final yet no longer least, the basics of common relativity are defined, together with the hot Gravity Probe B experiment.
