Einstein [electronic resource]: Shedding Light on the Universe

Nova Multimedia, Llc
Format

Summary
This clever animated biography of Albert Einstein incorporates photos and quotes into a lively overview of the physicist's life and ideas. Careful attention is given to how Einstein reconciled conventional velocity addition with the constant speed of light and how he arrived at his special and general theories of relativity. His most famous equation, E=mc2, is derived in four simple steps. The tapping of matter's energy through fission and fusion is also addressed. As entertaining as it is informative, this program is a must for any introduction to atomic physics and Einstein's contributions to 20th-century science.
