The True Nature of Time

The True Nature of Time video documentary on YouTube, with physicist Michio Kaku:

Another excellent production by BBC. Michio Kaku explains complex ideas in easy to understand terms. (In my opinion, the best video presentation of time and Albert Einstein’s theores of relativity was produced in 1997 by the BBC.)

Do you think that Einstein’s theories of relativity don’t apply to our everyday world? Think again. Our GPS (Global Positioning System) wouldn’t work if it didn’t include compensation for the effects of both Einstein’s Special and General Theories of Relativity. If GPS assumed classical Newtonian models of time and space, our GPS receivers would accumulate about six miles of inaccuracy each day. Einstein’s Relativity and Everyday Life
