Cool Science Radio - Einstein's War - Matthew Stanley

May 23, 2019

Matthew Stanley joins Cool Science Radio to discuss his new book, EINSTEIN’S WAR: How Relativity Triumphed Amid the Vicious Nationalism of World War I. Einstein’s country was at war and he was separated from his closest confidants by barbed wire and U-boats, his unlikely partnership with astronomer A. S. Eddington proved to be the most important alliance of his career. Their joint effort (Einstein’s ideas and Eddington’s conviction in their truth) paved the way for Einstein to change the field of science forever.
