On November 15th, 1915, Einstein published his greatest work: general relativity. The theory transformed our understanding of nature's laws and the entire history of the cosmos, reaching back to the origin of time itself. Now, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Einstein's achievement, NOVA tells the inside story of Einstein's masterpiece. The story begins with the intuitive thought experiments that set Einstein off on his quest and traces the revolution in cosmology that is still playing out in today's labs and observatories. Discover the simple but powerful ideas at the heart of relativity, illuminating the theory-and Einstein's brilliance-as never before. From the first spark of an idea to the discovery of the expanding universe, the Big Bang, black holes, and dark energy, NOVA uncovers the inspired insights and brilliant breakthroughs of "the perfect theory."

The finest and most enjoyable film of its kind
28 February 2019 | by artdonovandesignSee all my reviews

I can't explain it anymore than I can explain the math behind the Theory of General Relativity, but Nova's biopic of Einstein and how he came to develop his world-altering theories is THE most informative, enlightening and enjoyable film on science I have ever seen.

Perhaps I am not qualified to provide an un-biased review here, as I have viewed it over 90 times to date. However the overall production, writing, presentation, music track, editing and mysterious tone of I.E.M. is absolutely addictive. I honestly don't know how the producers of Nova did it and quite the task it was to condense the creative, personal and professional life of one of the smartest humans to ever live into a brief one hour special.

The presenters, scientists and astrophysicists all, illustrate Einstein's life in a series of staggering and intellectually gripping anecdotes. I now have the very basic mathematical formula for General Relativity committed to memory, compliments to Dr. Robbert DiGraaf, Director of the Institute for Advanced Research at Princeton. This is quite a feat, as I couldn't explain it in 100 lifetimes and you're looking at someone who failed Freshman high school algebra. But this is an example of just how impressive this film is.

I cannot recommend "Inside Einstein's Mind" high enough. I shall continue to view it, as it has become my default show to stream in my studio.
