This award winning blog looks fascinating.

“Journey by Starlight” is the untold story of Albert Einstein’s imaginary journey across the universe.

“This is the story of a great journey that started with a great thought. One day in 1895 a boy looked into a mirror and wondered what the universe would look like if he could travel on a beam of light. That sixteen year old boy was Albert Einstein and that one thought started him on the road to discover his Theory of Relativity.”
