Starting with an explanation of the theory of relativity, the authors meticulously build the case for why energy must be related to mass, with the speed of light somehow mysteriously involved in the proportion. The origin of the concept of mass is investigated during a visit to the Large Hadron Collider, where the "God" particle was recently discovered. After discussions of energy and mass, the writers explain why the speed of light is involved in the famous equation.
Serves as a nice introduction to basic modern physics.
