The Breakthrough Prize Organization held a contest which asked young people to make videos explaining big ideas in science to the public at large. The winner of this Breakthrough Junior Challenge for 2015 was 18-year old Ryan Chester, who made a video describing the Special Theory of Relativity. Ryan was given $250,000, and his school and teachers another $150,000.
Ryan's video, which lasts 7:33, can be broken into three sections, each about 2 minutes long.
