IAS Family Science Talk: Einstein's Dream

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”––Albert Einstein, IAS Founding Professor

In an exploration of curiosity and adventures into the unknown, Robbert Dijkgraaf will explain the important role that curiosity played in Einstein's work, leading to discoveries that are everywhere around us from lasers, nuclear energy, and GPS.
