First off lets watch a movie,

find

Richard_Wolfson_-_01_Time_Travel,_Tunneling,_Tennis_And_Tea.[sharethefiles.com]

and watch that for a very good overview of modern physics in 30 mins

another good Movie to watch would be Einstein and Eddington, especially if you are

There is much learned in the last 100 years.

as soon as we saw them we shot a killer laser pulse to obliterate all intelligent life there
