The previous videos in this series:
Chapter 1: Why Relativity is Hard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rLWVZVWfdY&
Chapter 2: Spacetime Diagrams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTxWAQGgeQw

This video is chapter 3 in my series on special relativity, and it covers boosts, galilean transformations, newtonian relativity, and of course Lorentz transformations, the constancy of the speed of light, relative changes of velocity between inertial reference frames, etc – some of the stuff Einstein figured out. I introduce the mechanical minkowski diagram, aka mechanical Lorentz transformation, aka spacetime globe.
