It’s been studied by scientists for centuries, and it’s still a source of fascination and debate. 

From the relativity of time to the age-defying secrets of time dilation, this list explores some of the most fascinating aspects of time. We’ll discover how time passes differently in space, how time slows down for objects that are moving, and how time marches on messily according to the second law of thermodynamics. We’ll also explore the accuracy of GPS and how light travels even in a jiffy. And we’ll take a look at Ethiopia, the only African nation that was never taken over by a foreign power, and how baseball can be used to measure particles.

So let’s delve into the mysteries of time and explore the fascinating aspects of this ever-changing concept.
