Time Dialation (Theory of Relativity)
Imagine that one of twin brother goes to outer space on a rocket near the speed of light and then returns to Earth. He will find that his second brother is older now. It is called Einstein's Theory of Relativity. According to this principle, time goes slow and fast in different places, and the inequality of time is often called Time Dialation. It was discovered by Einstein.
Before the discovery by Einstein, a story was written in Srimad-Bhagvat that a king named Kakudami had crossed over the three types of dimension with his daughter Revati, and came to Brahmalok. He had spent some time in Brahmalok, but when he came back to earth, thousands of years had passed. In this story, Einstein's theory is reflected that the time passes different speed at different place.
