The Morgan Library Hosts an Exhibit on Albert Einstein

By Maryann Yin 

Albert Einstein 200 (GalleyCat)The Morgan Library & Museum is currently hosting the “Celebrating 100 Years of Einstein’s General Theory” exhibit. This program was organized to mark the century that has passed since the 1916 publication of Albert Einstein’s (pictured, via) paper on the general theory of relativity.

This display features a letter written by Einstein, a photograph of Einstein with an inscription, and a rare summation of the theory written by Einstein himself. The closing date has been scheduled for October 16.

Here’s more from the organization’s website: “In this centenary year scientists are yet again confirming Einstein’s general theory. In June 2016, U.S. researchers reported observations that detected gravitational waves caused by the collision between two black holes. This is the second time in human history that gravitational waves have been detected, proving definitely that Einstein’s June 1916 presentation of the general theory of relativity has passed the test.”
