        Speed of Light: Time Traveler

        Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity suggests, among other things, that time slows down for an object traveling near the speed of light in relation to a stationary observer. In this interactive game from the NOVA Web site, send a person on a speeding rocket to far-off stars and learn how velocity and distance traveled influence how the person ages compared with someone on Earth.

        This interactive activity requires Adobe Shockwave Player.

        This resource can be found on the NOVA: Einstein Revealed Web site.
