Assignment Discovery: Albert Einstein's Theories
On Discovery Channel's "Assignment Discovery," after years of turmoil over endless equations Albert Einstein finally proves mathematically that mass and energy curve space and time.
Assignment Discovery: Einstein and General Relativity
On Discovery Channel's "Assignment Discovery," Albert Einstein was a revolutionary thinker, and his theory of general relativity brought a new understanding to the concept of gravity.
Assignment Discovery: Einstein's Early Years
Albert Einstein was born in 1879 in southern Germany. Learn more biographical information about Albert Einstein on Discovery channel's "Assignment Discovery."
Assignment Discovery: Einstein's Light Speed Revelation
On Discovery Channel's "Assignment Discovery," learn how Albert Einstein discovered that time is relative, meaning that when objects travel at, or close to the speed of light, distances stretch and time slows down.
Assignment Discovery: Geodesic Shape
Explained first by Albert Einstein, a geodesic is the shape in which planets orbit the sun and warp space in time in that path.
Assignment Discovery: Mass Energy Equivalence Formula
On Discovery Channel's "Assignment Discovery," learn about, what is perhaps, Albert Einstein's most startling conclusion, the mass-energy equivalence formula or E=mc squared. It states that energy and mass are linked with the speed of light.
Assignment Discovery: Relativity and Big Bang Theory
On Discovery Channel's "Assignment Discovery," learn how Edwin Hubble's observations coupled with Einstein's theory of relativity have led to the Big Bang theory.
Assignment Discovery: Space Time
The more mass a star or planet has, the more steeply it bends space-time around it. Learn more about space-time on Discovery Channel's "Assignment Discovery."
Assignment Discovery: Stephen Hawking and Black Holes
On Discovery Channel's "Assignment Discovery," renowned physicist Stephen Hawking attempts to marry quantum theorists and Einstein loyalists to try and show them that both ideas and formulas work.
