[8.02] “Inside Einstein’s Universe” Using current science to explore key questions about space and time

E.L. Reinfeld, M.E. Dussault, R.R. Gould, J.A. Grier, S.J. Steel (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)

As educational organizations across the country celebrate the ideas of the Einstein Relativity Centennial in 2005, the NASA-Smithsonian UniverseForum will highlight the ongoing scientific research that helps us understand space, time, and our place in the cosmos. By connecting scientists across the country to our “Inside Einstein’s Universe” resource portfolio and partners, we will promote connections between scientists and educators, and help bring current space scientific investigations to the museum-going public. This poster details the ways in which scientists can contribute to educational efforts over the next sixteen months and make use of new resources to teach audiences of all ages about the themes of the Einstein Centennial. Participating scientists will be able to make use of these resources in future endeavors well beyond 2005.

The UniverseForum, located at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, is NASA’s official partner in developing and sharing educational resources about the structure and evolution of the universe. Our “Inside Einstein’s Universe” program will complement the educational efforts of the American Physics Society’s “World Year of Physics 2005” celebration and NASA’s “Beyond Einstein” program.
