Though they likely never met, Albert Einstein and Hunter S. Thompson are now neighbors in downtown Lebanon. A new mural at 38 S. Gannon St. depicts Einstein, a world renowned theoretical physicist best known for developing the theory of relativity. Einstein can be found painted on a large garage ...
Albert Einstein. He published the first part of his theory -- special relativity -- in the German physics journal Annalen der Physik in 1905 and completed his theory of general relativity only after another decade of difficult work. He presented the latter theory in a series of lectures in Berlin in late 1915 ... mind
Five years ago I stumbled upon a poignant description of our relationship to the universe by Albert Einstein: A human being is part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest, a kind of ...
Albert Einstein published his theory of general relativity back in 1915, and it's now the agreed-upon math that describes gravity. A few of its key assumptions are that that all of space exists not in three dimensions, but as four-dimensional spacetime. Light traveling unimpeded always moves the same ...

The two appear to behave the same way to within a tiny uncertainty, and in a convoluted way the result supports the foundation of Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity. It also opens the way to more stringent comparisons of matter-antimatter--and the possibility that the two aren't exact opposites.
For anyone who wants to build lasting wealth, understanding and harnessing the power of compound interest is vital. The more time you give your investments, the more you can accelerate the income potential of your original investment. "In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity" - Albert Einstein.
I am dismayed that The Denver Post would devote so much space to a notorious climate-change denier, Will Happer, whose misleading claims have been widely debunked. Happer cherry-picks facts out of context and is flat-out wrong about the rest. He asserts without evidence that Albert Einstein ... global warming
It is often claimed that Einstein was a poor student who flunked math. This old story is false and Albert laughed after hearing about it. In fact, he had mastered calculus by high school and was able to understand the nearly incomprehensible philosophy of Immanuel Kant at age 13. Most adults I know ... school
Albert Einstein would almost certainly have been a global warming skeptic if he were alive today. Many distinguished, contemporary scientists are skeptics, too. We are lucky that Einstein left a rich legacy of pithy quotes that reveal how he would probably relate to today's cult of global warming alarmists. school

Einstein's science, and general views on humanity, have profoundly changed the way we see ourselves and the world we live in. He was not faultless, as no human is. He was an absent father and unfaithful husband. He lived in very different times, and — right or wrong from our current standards — we ... school

A note written by Albert Einstein in 1921 to an Italian scientist who had refused to meet him has sold for $6,100 (£4,300) at an auction in Jerusalem.

We've discussed before what Einstein thought about god. As he was a brilliant man who thought deeply about many subjects, it can be of great use to learn his perspective on things. While he was a scientist first, his ideas on subjects outside his area of study can still be valuable. Especially if, as in this case ... school
A violin once owned by Albert Einstein sold for $516,500 at the New York-based Bonhams auction house on Friday.

Steger made the violin himself and inscribed it with the words “Made for the Worlds[sic] Greatest Scientist Profesior[sic] Albert Einstein By Oscar H.

The world seemed a little heavier and a little duller following the death of prolific scientist Professor Stephen Hawking yesterday (March 14), but when a man of such measure – and such a wicked sense of humour – is lost, we have to celebrate the highlights.

How smart was Albert Einstein? One of the first things he purchased after coming to the United States in 1933 was an unlined brown leather jacket by Levi's.
