Most people think of space and time as two separate
things. Einstein realized that space and time are two parts of
the same thing: spacetime.
Einstein’s theory is based on two basic assumptions:
The speed of light is the same for all observers.
The laws of physics
are the same as long as you’re
traveling at a constant speed.
