Einstein Papers Project Visiting Hours Suspended

Keeping health and safety in mind, the Einstein Papers Project has suspended its visiting hours until further notice.


Whitney Clavin's piece on the Caltech website, "Not a Lone Genius", addresses collaboration in science. Recently, she spoke with Diana Kormos Buchwald about how, and with whom, Einstein collaborated. To dive deeper into some of those working relationships, take a look at our first fourteen volumes on line, where you can read written exchanges between Einstein and his peers and follow links to see scans of the original manuscripts. Volume 15 of The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, out in print since spring 2018, will have its digital release on March 14, 2020.

Einstein, Ehrenfest, Langevin, Onnes, Weiss. Leiden, Holland, 1920.

Caltech Magazine's occasional series #SoCaltech features Caltech senior Maggie Anderson. Maggie is majoring in both physics and history. Considering the demands of studying at Caltech, and with a double-major no less, the EPP is always grateful when students find time in their schedule to work with us. Who knew Maggie's talents extended to mural painting as well? If you're curious about other people who have worked with us over the years, they are listed on our Past Editors & Staff page in the Who We Are section of the site.


"Cosmic Explorations: at the Intersection of Science, Space, Art, and Culture"
This event has been postponed until further notice.


The eleventh international conference from the series The Inspiration of Astronomical Phenomena, will focus on the intersection of science, humanities, art, and culture. Celestial phenomena have fascinated humanity for millennia, inspiring works of art, science, scholarship, and emerging technologies. Southern California has played a major, or even a central role in this arena over the past century. The conference goals are to provide scholars from various, disparate disciplines an opportunity to interact, gain new perspectives, and establish novel collaborations. Further goals are to celebrate the rich history and ongoing activities within these intersecting disciplines, while informing and inspiring the general public.

The Einstein Papers Project is pleased to join in supporting the Cosmic Explorations conference organized or sponsored in part by Caltech's Center for Data-Driven Discovery (CD3) and Astronomy Department, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Griffith Observatory, Huntington Library, ArtCenter College of Design, Carnegie Observatories, Caltech Optical Observatories (COO), Owens Valley Radio Observatory (OVRO), and others. 02-06-20
