## Special relativity is a 5-points worth exercise in Math 18 with a bit of physical twitch.

##### Abstract:

If a man is on a rocket with a certain finite speed, he will travel through the entire universe (no matter how large the universe is) in the blink of an eye. Notoriously weird and unrealistic claim from relativity, but takes just about 20 minutes to really understand this.
