Einstein's Universe - Bill Bryson

This quote was added by user16974
In essence what relativity says is that space and time are not absolute, but relative to both the observer and to the thing being observed, and the faster one moves the more pronounced these effects become. We can never accelerate ourselves to the speed of light, and the harder we try (and faster we go) the more distorted we will become, relative to an outside observer.

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to f̶l̶y̶ travel the speed of light Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, f̶l̶ies- travels the speed of light anyways. Because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.
