Talking About Albert Einstein

Monday, 04 September, 2000

When Einstein died he left his papers to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Professor Hanoch Gutfreund, a fellow physicist and former President of that university, is probably the best qualified person to speak about Einstein.

Professor Gutfreund will deliver a talk on Albert Einstein: The Man and the Scientist, at UNSW, followed by refreshments.

Einstein rebuilt physics and can be said to have changed the course of history with his theory of relativity, including his famous formula which showed that mass and energy were interchangeable. This led to the development of nuclear weapons and Einstein was one of many scientists who campaigned against its use. The theory of relativity made many predictions that appeared to defy common sense but have proved accurate.

The talk is presented by UNSW's School of Physics in collaboration with the Outreach Centre for Sciences at UNSW and the NSW Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

'Albert Einstein: The Man and the Scientist' will be presented at the Keith Burrows Lecture Theatre, School of Physics, University of New South Wales on Wednesday 6 September 2000 at 7.00pm.
