This paper describes methods for explanatory and illustrative visualizations used to communicate aspects of Einstein's theories of special and general relativity, their geometric structure, and of the related fields of cosmology and astrophysics. Our illustrations target a general audience of laypersons interested in relativity. We discuss visualization(More)
In this application paper, we report on over fifteen years of experience with relativistic and astrophysical visualization, which has been culminating in a substantial engagement for visualization in the Einstein Year 2005—the 100 th anniversary of Einstein's publications on special relativity, the photoelectric effect, and Brownian motion.

In an advanced course to general relativity, some exotic spacetimes like wormholes with a more complex topology than the standard Schwarzschild spacetime can be studied in detail. In this paper, we will advance the idea by Morris and Thorne that wormholes could be a valuable tool for teaching general relativity to rotating wormholes. In particular, we(More)
