Albert Einstein As You’ve Almost Certainly Never Seen Him Before
Physics professor and friend of Whatever Chad Orzel ran a fundraiser for science education a few weeks ago and promised if certain financial goals were met that he would re-enact the quantum physics debate between Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr using puppets. Well, the goals were met, and Chad, a man of his word, has the re-enactment up on his blog. Because Niels Bohr puppets are in tragically short supply, however, Chad improvised, substituting dog puppets for the eminent scientists. Which makes it even better.
I’ll note, incidentally, that Chad’s upcoming book How to Teach Physics to Your Dog is getting great reviews, and will be featured here in a Big Idea later in the month. Here’s the book’s Web site, in case you can’t wait.
