# Relativistic Physicist

### By Baker Smith

## You lost me at the letter 'R'...

A relativistic physicist is essentially a job studying time dilation, the properties of light, and the highest speeds that matter can travel. Albert Einstein laid the groundwork of this career in his famous equation e=mc^2 (energy equals mass times the speed of light squared), which I'm sure that more than half of the people who say it have no idea what it means.

## What's the outlook?

The outlook from 2012 to 2020 is expected to be 10%, and the wages for 2012 are a median of $106,360 per year.

## Deformation Imagining 3D space as 2D as to be able to comprehend time (4D) as 3D. | ## Wormholes Again, 4D is represented as 3D to show that time can bend space in our favor. | ## Time Dilation Graph Speed is measured in fractions of the speed of light. |

## What do you need to have?

The requirements for a physicist almost always include a Doctorate's Degree in some form of physics, and any other degrees in similar scientific fields help too. (Ex. Biology Degree for Biophysics)
