The staggeringly amazing OMG year in Einstein
From an Emmy-nominated TV show to a blockbuster scientific discovery, Einstein was all over 2017.
Michael Jackson's best friend bought a piece of Einstein history
This summer, Israeli mentalist and magician Uri Geller – and best friend to the late Michael Jackson – purchased at auction a 1954 letter written by Einstein. The note was part of a cache of letters written by the Nobel Prize winner to his friend David Bohm, who was miserable at the time. Einstein tried to cheer him up and suggested Bohm might want to move to Israel. Einstein called the Mediterranean country "intellectually active and interesting," in the note. The letter held special resonance for Geller, who has lived in Israel his entire life.
