Einstein's theory of relativity has revolutionized our understanding of time and space and their relationship to each other. The space-time that they have formed together is deformable. Time is a little different for each of us, depending on how fast we move relative each other or whether we are near large masses. These effects, which are inconspicuous in everyday life, can be observed and tested in many places in the universe. Until now, Einstein was always right. What we know about spacetime, time travel and the like is summarized in this lecture.
