David Tennant Explains The Theory Of General Relativity In This Awesome Animation

Windfall Films

It’s been 100 years since Einstein proposed one of the most powerful scientific ideas of all time - the theory of general relativity. Over the century, his ideas have been continually expanded, critiqued and developed, in an attempt to explain the fundamental truths of the universe and what the hell it's all about.

But unless you’re a super-sharp physicist, his ideas probably leave your mind melted into a pale grey mush.   

Thanks to this slick little animation by Eoin Duffy, Jamie Lochhead and Anais Rassat, everything you need to know about Einstein, spacetime and general relativity is easily explained in a little over three minutes. And who better to narrate the film than, the former time lord, David Tennant?
