Virginia Festival of the Book 2016: Modern Science Obsession, Paranoia, Jealousy, and Einstein

Bruce Hillman (The Man Who Stalked Einstein) shares a fascinating history, which explores high-stake competitiveness in early 20th century physics and how the antagonism between Einstein and Nobel Prize winner Philipp Lenard affected the direction of science for decades to come.

Mr. Hillman spoke at the Charlottesville City Council Chambers on March 18, 2016 as a part of the 2016 Virginia Festival of the Book. Following the presentation questions were taken from the audience.
