FearOfPhysics.com: The high speed relativisitc house

Fly by a House at a speed near the Speed of Light

See this house? It looks pretty normal, right? A roof, door, windows, and some walls. If you walked or drove by such a house, it would look pretty much the same.

Well, the great Albert Einstein said funny things should happen to our view of such things if we move past them at a high speed, like near the speed of light itself.

Want to see what he means? Click on some of the links below.

Fly By the house from right to left at: A normal (slow) speed, 50% the speed of light, 80% the speed of light, 90% the speed of light, 99.9% the speed of light

Fly Through the house at: a normal speed, 50% the speed of light, 99% the speed of light, 99.9% the speed of light

(The last two here are really neat.)
