Einstein's Big Idea

Einstein's Big Idea

NOVA pays tribute to Albert Einstein's remarkable equation, a special two-hour presentation that dramatizes the stories of the men and women whose innovative thinking across four centuries led to Einstein's bold breakthrough. Based on David Bodanis' bestseller, E=mc2 (2000), "Einstein's Big Idea" celebrates the ingenuity and chronicles the human conflicts that ultimately unleashed the power of the atom and the myriad number of ways the equation has changed the world.
