A sky show on Albert Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity is being screened at the Space Museum to commemorate the centenary of his ground-breaking physics theory.

The theory predicts strange effects such as that time, length and simultaneity of events vary depending on the viewer.

The German-born Swiss-American physicist was thought to have learning disorders when he was a child.

He later came up with the General Theory of Relativity and the famous equation E=mc?, which made him one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century.

The 40-minute show is being screened daily at 2.40pm and 6.10pm, with an additional 11.10am show on Sundays and public holidays.

Tickets at $24 and $32 are available at the venue and Urbtix. Call 2721 0226 or visit http://hk.space.museum/ for enquiries.
