Synopsis: Most people know that Einstein was a great scientist, but many think his theories are so esoteric and purely academic that they have nothing to do with our daily lives.
In our technology-driven society, where even toothbrushes contain microcomputers, Einstein s legacy is everywhere. This book explores the incredible degree to which we all rely on his discoveries.
This book was desiged to be enjoyable and enlightening, for both those who love science, and those who fear physics and are allergic to math. Each chapter describes in plain English something Einstein discovered and shows why this discovery is important to you.
Some claim that if Einstein hadn t made these discoveries, surely someone else would have...eventually. However, some of Einstein s discoveries are so extraordinary that without his genius they might remain undiscovered today, even after 100 years.
So, what do we owe to Einstein? For starters, how about:
Bar code scanners
Laser range finding
MRI body scanners
Automatic door openers
Laser eye and heart surgery
Magnetically levitated trains
Digital cameras and video cameras
Internet and telephone communication
Our most powerful telescopes and microscopes
And, our understanding of our place in the cosmos
Not too shabby for just one guy.
