Albert Einstein said his first ideas about relativity came from looking in the mirror as a teenager and wondering what it would be like to travel on a beam of light. This is the story of that journey ...
A Time Traveller's Guide to Life follows Einstein and his traveling companion through space and time as they journey on a beam of light from a star over 3,000 light years away to Earth. Along the way, Einstein explains the science behind everything from the origins of the universe to the meaning of life, relativity, black holes, quantum mechanics (for beginners), climate change, evolution vs. intelligent design, and how the brain works: all delivered in fun, easy-to-understand, bite-sized chunks.
This innovative graphic novel pairs the narrative with fantastic, whimsical artwork to make difficult concepts clear - and explain life, the universe and (almost) everything!
