Theory of General Relativity Celebrates Its Centennial

What is “time”? Is it merely a construct of the human imagination, as a result of the way we perceive reality? Or is it tangible, making it an observable facet of reality that can be measured and studied like other elements of our universe?

While such questions remain, there are a lot of things that we have learned about time, and its relationship to thermodynamic laws, gravity, and even how our minds work in relation to the concepts of space and time. Much of this is thanks to the groundbreaking work of Albert Einstein, renowned physicist whose theory of relativity celebrates its centennial this month.
