  • Einstein's Lock

    by ME Riordan, MD, PhD
    In 1905, Albert Einstein published his landmark paper on special relativity, leading to a revolution in physics and society.

To most people there was only one conclusion to the clock data, Einstein’s theory of special relativity must be true. How else does one explain the bizarre idea that time appe... more

The book, an essential read for non-scientists and scientists alike, offers both an analysis... more
