I am a sceptic of relativity theory and am trying to become a believer. As far as I know (about this theory), time slows down when some one travels at the speed of light. What about blind people ? Will this effect happen for them as well ?.. I am curious because blind people have nothing to do with light.
Can a baseball be hit farther using a corked bat? Can taking steroids results in increased home run production? Is the baseball more lively today than it was in yesteryear? And what's the deal with all those home runs in Denver and how has the humidor changed that? These are questions of interest to many fans of our national pastime.
It may surprise you to learn that these questions can be answered by applying physics-based techniques. So, come to my talk, make sure you are properly dressed in gear from your favorite team, and learn how a physicist goes about analyzing the game of baseball.
