'What's So Special about Relativity?' will address Einstein's theories

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Have you ever wondered why E equals mc squared? And, if "everything is relative," why does anything matter? To tackle these and other questions, professors from Stevens Institute of Technology will host "What's So Special about Relativity?" a teach-in and science party in the Wesley J. Howe Center's Bissinger Room on October 11 at 7pm.

Join Professors Ed Whittaker, Garry Dobbins, John Horgan and Jim McLellan to see amazing demonstrations including a juggling act, participate in an exciting discussion, enjoy dessert and find out why what happened in a small apartment in Bern, Switzerland in 1905 changed the world and is still important to our lives today.

For more information, please contact Whittaker at 201-216-5707 or ewhittak@stevens.edu.
