Images: The World's Most Beautiful Equations

Einstein makes the list again with his formulas for special relativity, which describes how time and space aren't absolute concepts, but rather are relative depending on the speed of the observer. The equation above shows how time dilates, or slows down, the faster a person is moving in any direction. "The point is it's really very simple," said Bill Murray, a particle physicist at the CERN laboratory in Geneva. "There is nothing there an A-level student cannot do, no&n…

Einstein Theory Of Relativity Canvas Print / Canvas Art by Michael Tompsett

Albert Einstein's equation for the General Theory of Relativity, on a red background. General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime.

Hidden in Einstein's Math: Faster-than-Light Travel?

Two physicists have extended Einstein's special relativity equations for faster-than-light travel, although no one knows if it's possible to move faster than the speed of light.
