In 1905 Albert Einstein is 26 and working at the Swiss Patent Office as a poorly paid third-class technical expert. In his spare time he pursues his passion for physics. The papers he produces will be extraordinary, revolutionising the way we view the world and laying the foundation of modern physics. In this collection of essays from the acclaimed Royal Society/National Radio series E=mc2, leading New Zealand scientists and historians explore the centuries of science that led to Einstein’s astonishing discoveries, and their world-shaking aftermath:


Matt Visser: A Short History of the Universe


Hamish Campbell: Discovering the Age of the Earth


Richard Hall & Lesley Hall: Einstein and the Eternal Railway Carriage


Tom Barnes: Schrödinger’s Cat


Paul Callaghan: Journey to the Heart of Matter


Robert Hannah: The Unconquered Sun


John Stenhouse: Galileo’s Dilemma


With an introduction by Rebecca Priestley.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
