Description:

This web page deals with the problem of simultaneity through an Apollo 11 Mission anecdote. The finite speed of light causes differences in the order of events even for non-moving observers, requiring careful synchronizations of clocks. It also has an animation that helps the understanding of non-simultaneous events.
