In special relativity, a light cone (or null cone) is the surface describing the temporal evolution of a flash of light in Minkowski spacetime. This can be visualized in 3-space if the two horizontal axes are chosen to be spatial dimensions, while the vertical axis is time.

Image from wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_cone


The following simulation was created to help you visualize the light cone (for observer moving with blue dot at the left X-Y panel). Events from three observers are drawed with blue, green and cyan traces.

  • Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
  • Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
  • Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!

You have to be sure that already have java in your PC to be able run all simulation,
Try again and use more than one browser.

I can't run the simulation too. Is there any other way to watch it?

To you can watch simulations at you PC you should be already install JDK(Java run time) you can found at Java SE Development Kit 7 Downloads
Later when finish download you have too install and Enjoy the physics applets.
