Website of the Day: Wednesday 16th March
>> Einstein Year
Three good reasons to pick an Einstein-friendly site today:
1) It’s National Science week
2) Monday would have been the mad-haired physicist’s 126th birthday
3) 2005 is Einstein Year, celebrating the centenary of the publication of his three most significant papers which redefined the way we view the entire universe.
So what essential features belong on a site celebrating the joys of physics? Start with an online game called Time Twins starring a space-traveling teddy bear and featuring Einstein's famous Twins Paradox, and lots of lasers, teleportation and the Beagle 2 space prob. Then add scientific poetry written by Muppets (really!), a free Einstein-inspired mp3 download of a rap by DJ Vader, an interactive murder mystery game, and a screensaver download that helps with the search for gravitational waves.
