E = mc^2 is not the complete story, that is for masses at rest (zero velocity relative to your momentum); the Pythagorean analogue is much better, described in this YouTube video:

For those who are slightly math inclined see my blog:You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. What's interesting is that his 1905 paper contained no calculus, no fancy math gymnastics to get his result. He does have a formula that he did not derive, but it was well-known at the time. I derived that formula in my next blog, You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. Though here, a little math is de rigueur. It's not for the faint- hearted. If you are also interested to know how Newton's is contained in Einstein's field equations, see: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I've already posted these, but some disappeared after the last shuffle.

Thanks
