Einstein's 'Complete' Archives Now Online

For all you science buffs out there.

Einstein Archives Online

Quote:
Albert Einstein's complete archives — from personal correspondence with half a dozen lovers to notebooks scribbled with his groundbreaking scientific research — are going online for the first time.

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which owns the German Jewish physicist's papers, is pulling never-before seen items from its climate-controlled safe, photographing them in high resolution and posting them on the Internet — offering the public a nuanced and fuller portrait of the man behind the scientific genius.

Only 900 manuscript images, and an incomplete catalog listing just half of the archive's contents, had been posted online since 2003. Now, with a grant from the Polonsky Foundation UK, which previously helped digitize Isaac Newton's papers, all 80,000 items from the Einstein collection have been cataloged and enhanced with cross referencing technology.

I hope they are posting translations. I imagine a lot of his notes, etc. are written in German.

I on the other hand find it strange that navigation is only possible in English and Hebrew and not in German.

Monkey, thank you very much for this link, a highly interesting site!
