This video is an entry for
the Breakthrough Junior Challenge 2015 which gives a unique visualization of
Special Relativity using hyperbolic geometry. I liked the idea of making a
video on Special Relativity because I had already explored the use of M.C.
Escher’s woodcut Circle Limit III as a teaching tool for explaining the
hyperbolic geometry of Minkowski spacetime. The main intuition is that the
principle of Relativity asserts that the manifold of frames of reference is
homogeneous and isotropic, and there are exactly three geometries associated
with this: Sphere (which exists as rotations through space), Plane (which
represents Galilean Relativity) and the Hyperbolic Plane (which exists as
rotations through spacetime). So watch and Learn:
