2018-04-04: The Unruh Effect

  • 04:59: In fact, the active acceleration does create a type of event horizon called a Rindler horizon.
  • 05:20: The Rindler horizon flows at a fixed distance behind a constantly accelerating observer.
  • 05:28: The distance of a Rindler horizon is inversely proportional to acceleration.
  • 05:46: Even momentary acceleration generates a Rindler horizon.
  • 05:54: It's like the projected future acceleration gives you a Rindler horizon in the present.
