Abstract

This is an article,Both the Special and General Theories of Relativity (hereafter: STR and GTR respectively) put forward by Professor Albert Einstein enjoy an impressive, spectacular, unparalleled and unprecedented success in explaining physical phenomenon as it is revealed by experience. So successful are these theories ? so much that ? their very foundations are no-longer questioned from a pessimist?s standpoint but from that of an optimist? viewpoint. Any envisioned or proposed (new) experiment or observational measurement is naturally expected to confirm the STR and GTR. Amongst the foundation stones of the STR and GTR is the treatment of space and time on an equal footing. While in-principle this treatment has no problem when dealing with reference frames, we urge herein that this treat may not be correct when it comes to handling coordinate systems.
