The Theory That Changed Physics Forever: Einsteinian Relativity

One of the most impressive things accomplished in the 20th century was Einstein's Theory of Relativity. What we perceive as the force of gravity is actually a result of the curvature of space and time.
According to Space.com, 'Albert Einstein determined that the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers, and that the speed of light in a vacuum was independent of the motion of all observers. This was the theory of special relativity.'
