Tonight's episode of Cosmos (+COSMOSonTV) didn't do a great job of explaining special relativity as an outcome of the constancy and invariability of the speed of light; in brief, if you hold that the speed of light is the same to all observers regardless of the direction and speed of their movement, the only way to resolve that apparent paradox is to allow the "passage of time" to be different to each observer.

Here's a pretty good explainer by +MinutePhysics.

+Tesla Motors: protecting you even when you do stupid shit that should rightfully have made you dead:

 the other Model S impact fire, which occurred last year in Mexico. This happened after the vehicle impacted a roundabout at 110 mph, shearing off 15 feet of concrete curbwall and tearing off the left front wheel, then smashing through an eight foot tall buttressed concrete wall on the other side of the road and tearing off the right front wheel, before crashing into a tree. The driver stepped out and walked away with no permanent injuries and a fire, again limited to the front section of the vehicle, started several minutes later. The underbody shields will help prevent a fire even in such a scenario.
