To Begin: Find out All About Einstein http://www.edu-cyberpg.com/Music/musicsmarteinstein.html
Next on NOVA: "Einstein's Big Idea" http://www.pbs.org/nova/einstein/
Broadcast: October 11, 2005, 8-10 p.m. ET/PT (NOVA airs Tuesdays on PBS at 8 p.m. Check your local listings as dates and times may vary.)
Exactly 100 years ago, Albert Einstein grappled with the implications of his revolutionary special theory of relativity and came to a startling conclusion: mass and energy are one, related by the formula E = mc2. In "Einstein's Big Idea," NOVA dramatizes the remarkable story behind this equation. Based on David Bodanis's bestselling book E = mc2: A Biography of the World's Most Famous Equation, the program explores the lives of the men and women who helped develop the concepts behind each term in the equation: E for energy; m for mass; c for the speed of light; and 2 for "squared," the multiplication of one number by itself. Like a multi-plot novel building to a climactic scene, "Einstein's Big Idea" traces the stories of a fascinating range of characters.
Here's what you'll find online:
