Einstein: Why He Was a Big Deal (Closed)

Course Description:

Albert Einstein, Novel Laureate and "Time" magazine's Man of the Century, is famous worldwide. He flexed his powerful cerebrum to explain new observations: photons, black holes, the Big Bang, the curvature of space-time, the twin paradox, and other "out-of-this-world" phenomena. Busy, yes, but not too busy to contribute to world politics nor to manage a fascinating personal life. Join us as we examine his storied existence and shed light on his many scientific contributions (without equations or complex graphics).
