In this contribution, the authors assess the current experimental status of Special and General Relativity. Particular emphasis is put on putative extensions of these theories and on how these could be detected experimentally.

Assuming no prior knowledge by the reader, the book raises specific, hitherto overlooked questions about how time works, such as how and why anyone can be made to be, at the very same instant, simultaneous with events that are actually days apart.

This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.
This book examines the evolution of the principle of relativity in its classical, special, and general incarnations, with the aim of showing how it has repeatedly inspired advances in our understanding of the physical world.

The book offers an alternative to Einstein's special theory of relativity, with the main purpose of developing a form of relativity, which can be combined with quantum mechanics and thus can open to a unified field theory.
