formulated by Albert Einstein in 1905,
is based on the experimentally
confirmed idea that the velocity of
light is the same universal constant
c= 3x1010 cm./sec., for all observers

relative to each other. Consequently
Einstein's genius deduced that events
which are simultaneous to one observer
are not simultaneous to a second
