When she finally arrives in America to reunite with her parents, Ingrid finds a father railing at “this blasted life” as he lashes out on his family, a mother wrestling with her disappointments and a life burdened by a family secret.

Albert Einstein: Rock Star, with Stephen Rosen

Though famously indifferent to fame, Einstein was someone we would today call a “rock star”. His Theory of General Relativity is one of the greatest triumphs of a single human mind. Transforming gravitation into geometry, it challenged our egocentric view of the Universe and created an exciting new form of astronomy. Stephen Rosen is a physicist whose specialty is cosmic radiation and whose works have appeared in scientific journals and in the national media. Join him for a talk about this iconic genius.
