Transcript of Albert Einstein
"There are only two things infinite in this world: the Universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the Universe" Einstein's early work on the photoelectric effect wins the Nobel Prize in 1921 The Theory of Relativity Radical revision of Newton's theories
Spacetime curvature instead of force. The Special Theory of Relativity Einstein's Brain
Removed 7.5 hours after his death
Showed smaller speech and language areas, and larger numerical and spatial processing areas
It was removed and pickled
Stored for 23 years
Traveled cross-country in the trunk of a Buick The A-Bomb Escaped Germany at the onset of the Third Reich
Advocated the use of nuclear weaponry
Regretted his contributions later Einstein’s Presidential Offer:
Offered presidency of Israel in 1952 but he denied it
"I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel, and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it."
"I know a little of science, but nothing about men." Einstein's Political Career The General Theory of Relativity Black Holes Black Holes Phenomena with so much gravity that space and time are distorted
Not even light can escape
Can lead to wormholes Einstein-Rosen Bridges Science-y name for wormholes Quantum Foam Quiz Time! 1. What particle did Einstein 'discover' that won him the Nobel Prize?
2. What does the general theory of relativity include that the special theory does not?
3. How did Einstein's brain travel cross-country?
4. Einstein's theoretical work led to the development and use of what weapon?
5. Where do we currently believe wormholes exist?
6. Where was Einstein offered Presidency? and what was his reply? A curved-space structure, joining two distant regions of space and time through a spatial tunnel Interesting Factoids Gave all of his Nobel Prize money to his first wife - Mileva Maric - who divorced him on the grounds of adultery
