Even if your math is a bit rusty, tune in for accessible and exciting stories of nature and numbers that will allow you to see the universe in a new way.

Today’s equation shows that simultaneity is in the eye of the beholder. Two people who are moving relative to one another will not agree on what happens at the same time, and Brian derives the time discrepancy between them. Through a simple story get the basic idea.
