google will give me wiki and wiki makes no sense :p
It means the Energy equate to Mass times a constant of variation
Energy is directly porportional to mass :)
E = energy, M = mass, c = speed of light in vaccum. The energy = The mass times the speed of light^2
and since C is just a constant, what this really says is that energy IS mass
Energy = Mass*Speed of light^2
to have energy you need mass?
?... I haven't done chemistry yet, I just want to know what it means in general human terms. Why is everybody so excited about it?
Because we finally know what energy is
so energy is...matter?
It can be interpreted as if the mass 'm' travels faster than the of speed of light it changes its form to energy.
Wait- since I have mass, does that mean I'm energetic?
it means you have potential energy :)
I potentially have the energy to jog ten miles... true, I suppose
jog, roll, fall, shimmy and shake
you will see the energy if you light yourself on fire!

You have potential, but it requires to be extrapolated beyond the limits and you may change your form when you overstep the speed of light. Remember you 'd be no more a human being, you'd assume the shape of an Angel or some Jin. :)
I'd be HOT! (literally)
so that's how we know angels r beautiful...
It depends, if you wanna be hot, then you'd b Jin, otherwise Angel or Seraphims are cool and sizzling.
Tough question..:-) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_in_special_relativity http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rest_mass
