Storyboard Text

  • I'm going to space tomorrow!
  • I'm going to Barnard's star, which is 6 light years away.  So I'll be gone about 48 years
  • That's so exciting! Where are you going? How long will you be gone?
  • Actually, you'll be 84 since, it'll be more like 49 years for you.
  • Wow so since I'm 35, I'll be 83 once you get back!
  • Our times will be different?
  • Einstein's theory of relativity says you can't travel the speed of light. 
  • Well, I'm going to be traveling 25% the speed of light, or 75,000,000 meters per second!
  • It's time dilation, our time is relative to our speed.
  • Since I'm 30 now, and it'll be 48 years my time, I'll be 78.
  • Wow! So how old does that mean you'll be?
  • Lets meet here once you get back and compare ages, and see if it's true!
  • Yeah, that would be so cool!  I'll see you in 49 years!
  • Yeah! And I'm 78 just like I said, but on earth I'm really 79!
  • Wow, I'm 84 just like you said I'd be! I guess Einstein was right.
