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.
More than a century of tradition and achievement provide a bedrock for physics in Urbana. Our Department, ranked among the top ten physics departments in the nation by the National Research Council, our academic peers, and the media, is known world-wide for its excellence and innovation. Administratively located in Illinois' College of Engineering, the physicists of Illinois have had profound effects on our modern life. The applications of the transistor and microelectronics and nanoelectronics, the discovery of magnetic resonance imaging, the creation of light-emitting diodes and supercomputers, the development of radar and the Internet have all arisen directly from fundamental research in physics—research done here in the heartland of central Illinois. If you are considering applying to the Physics graduate program, please refer to our application instructions.
The deadline for graduate applications for Fall 2014 admission is January 15, 2014.
