Genius: after the last Einstein episode

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 16 minutes ago
Last night, the Czech National Geographic aired the last episode of "Genius" about Einstein. The program was rescheduled for another season that will cover the life of Pablo Picasso. I think it was very well done and I have learned some new things about Einstein's life. Despite the systemic importance of Einstein in theoretical physics, the questions whom he argued with or whom he had sex with haven't been the things I've been immensely interested in – people who aren't into physics are often puzzled by this fact but those who have a clue aren't – but I think that it made sense to ... more »
