Lectures curated around NOVA:Einstein’s Big Idea to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Albert Einstein and the 100th anniversary of what is often called his “annus mirabilis”. This 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. Genius by genius, idea by idea, NOVA: Einstein’s Big Idea shows how Einstein’s remarkable predecessors provided the intellectual tools for his extraordinary breakthrough, and will help you understand this famous equation as never before.
