Special relativity theory, light, electromagnetism, field, retardation, speed of light, inertial reference frame
In this second stroll about the Special Relativity Theory, I analyze Einstein’s insights about the actual meaning of his Relativity Theory. This analysis clarifies us about the way that the Special Relativity Theory should be understood, and help us to see if one really needs to be a genius for fully understanding it. It is found that the Special Relativity Theory is consisting of several independent concepts, of which the basics are unveiled and put in the right context of physics. Both the “Kinematical Part” and the “Electrodynamical Part” of Einstein’s 1905 paper are analyzed. The experiments that are claimed to prove the Special Relativity Theory are scrutinized in the context of the findings. A solution is found to deal with the paradoxes.
