Eric Ward writes "To mark the one hundredth anniversary of Einstein's
famous equation, E=mc2, NOVA has gone live this month with a Web site that features exclusive content and podcasts from ten of the worlds top physicists. This once-in-a-lifetime gathering of top scientists such as S. James Gates, Jr., Brian Greene, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Nobel Laureate Sheldon Glashow simplify what the equation means to our world today and the effect it has had on their careers. NOVA online also details how Einstein grappled with the implications of his revolutionary theory of relativity and came to a startling conclusion: that mass and energy are one,
related by the formula E=mc2.
Viewers will also find lesson plans through the
award-winning NOVA Teacher's Guide and a special
library resource kit."
I cannot conceive that anybody will require multiplications at the rate
of 40,000 or even 4,000 per hour ...
