- Aristotle : (384-322 BCE) Ancient Greek philosopher and scientist, and one of the most influential figures in the western world between 350 BCE and the sixteenth century.
- Christiaan Huygens : (14 April 1629 - 8 June 1695) an internationally renowned Dutch mathematician, physicist and astronomer.
- Electromagnetic radiation : a collection of electromagnetic waves, usually of different wavelengths.
- Electromagnetic wave : A change, periodic in space and time, of an electric field E(r,t) and a magnetic field B(r,t); a stream of electromagnetic waves, referred to as electromagnetic radiation, can be seen as a stream of massless elementary particles, named photons.
- Ether (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Gravitation : The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
- Hendrik Antoon Lorentz : Dutch theoretical physicist (1853 - 1928)
- James Clerk Maxwell : (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases.
- Scientific method : The concept of systematic inquiry based on hypotheses and their testing in light of empirical evidence.
- Special relativity : Theory of space and time, based on the postulates that all the laws of physics are equally valid in all frames of reference moving at a uniform velocity and that the speed of light from a uniformly moving source is always the same, regardless of how fast or slow the source or its observer is moving.
- Speed of light : A physical constant c describing the speed of electromagnetic radiation in vacuum. In the International System of Units the metre is the distance light travels in classical vacuum in 1/c seconds, using the defined value c = c0 ≡ 299 792 458 m/s (exact).
