He Won $250,000 for Explanation Of Einstein’s Special Theory Of Relativity.

His name is Ryan Chester and in 2015 when he was 18 years old Ryan won a prize of 400000$ for explaining the theory of relativity in a magnanimous way on youtube (check it out below).

In 2015, Ryan Chester made a 7-minute video explaining Einstein’s Special theory of relativity.Chester’s video won the Breakthrough Junior Challenge, earning a $400,000 prize. Of this money, Chester took home a $250,000 scholarship; his suburban Cleveland school got $100,000 for a new science lab; and Chester’s favorite teacher, Richard Nestoff, a physics teacher at North Royalton High, went away with $50,000. Not too shabby for a YouTube clip.

If you need to be convinced that Chester’s video is worth all this cash, just check it out below. Spoiler: Yes, it really is that good. In the award-winning video, Chester uses real-life demonstrations to describe the otherwise complex science term soup that is Einstein’s ground-breaking 1905 theory. He uses a bowl of popcorn, a moving van, cute on-screen graphics, and more to make this heady topic relatable, clear, and — dare we say it? — simple.SEE ALSO: The Phone That Works Without a Battery.
