Presented in collaboration with General Dynamics Corporation.

Gatefold inside pocket includes 2 separate booklets; one containing 34 pages (7¼ x 9¾ inches) cartoon-style with illustrations of the history and the Atomic revolution.

The second booklet has 16 pages (10¼ x 11¾ inches) Art-style, full color paintings and notes, titled "Exploring The Universe".

No artist name is credited to the illustration booklets, at the exception of the larger one; the initials "E.N." appears on all the paintings.

Also, a map of the stars and the universe was included in my copy.

There is no date on the actual gatefold or record, but "1957" appears printed on a couple of the materials supplied with this recording (see all images)

This record was released as a promotional recording in 1957 by the General Dynamics corporation. The art direction, elaborate packaging design and much of the original artwork included in the packaging was produced by Erik Nitsche, the head of design for GD at the time. Nitsche is widely regarded as a pioneer of modernist design of the 20th Century, and this LP cover showcases one of his most well known posters from the "Atoms for Peace" program that was started a few years earlier than 1957. Though not officially credited in the packaging, this project is the product of Nitsche and is most frequently sought after by collectors who desire his work.

The theory of relativity usually encompasses two interrelated theories by Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. Special relativity applies to all physical phenomena in the absence of gravity. General relativity explains the law of gravitation and its relation to other forces of nature. It applies to the cosmological and astrophysical realm, including astronomy. Relativity and field theory are absolutely central to modern physics. Here they are explained masterfully, with insight and wit. This is physics the way it's really done, in all its glory, nothing swept under the rug. Sean Carroll, author of The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself. Leonard Susskind and Art Friedman's Volume III of the Theoretical Minimum is a great geek read for those who want explore how to take basic Maxwellian E&M and Special Relativity to a Lagrangian-tensor packaging. Besides gaining some physical insights and learning about elegant mathematical approaches, this helps set the stage for particle physics and quantum field theory. Criticism of the theory of relativity. Criticism of the theory of relativity of Albert Einstein was mainly expressed in the early years after its publication in the early twentieth century, on scientific, pseudoscientific, philosophical, or ideological bases. Though some of these criticisms had the support of reputable scientists, Einstein's theory of relativity is now accepted by the scientific community. The Theory of Relativity. Licensed Version. Through a seemingly unrelated collection of songs, scenes and monologues, The Theory of Relativity introduces a compelling array of characters experiencing the joys and heartbreaks, the liaisons and losses, the inevitability and the wonder of human connection. The game-changing scientific theory about space and time, and how they're curved by mass, is mathematically complex. However, its much easier than you think to get your head around it. I write about science and nature, technology and travel, stargazing and eclipses. This undated file photo shows the famed German borne physicist Prof. Albert Einstein, author of. the theory of Relativity. Associated press. Everyone knows Albert Einstein was a genius, but can you explain what hes famous for . This was the theory of special relativity. It introduced a new framework for all of physics and proposed new concepts of space and time. Einstein then spent 10 years trying to include acceleration in the theory and published his theory of general relativity in 1915. In it, he determined that massive objects cause a distortion in space-time, which is felt as gravity. The tug of gravity. Two objects exert a force of attraction on one another known as gravity. Sir Isaac Newton quantified the gravity between two objects when he formulated his three laws of motion. The force tugging bet. According to the theory of the Unruh effect, accelerating particles are subject to increased radiation. This is what William Unruh a theorist from the University of British Columbia UBC, Vancouver asserted in 1976. Let us discuss the very nature of the cosmos. What you may find in this discussion is not what you expect. Going into a conversation about the universe as a whole, you would imagine a story full of wondrous events such as stellar collapse, galactic collisions, strange occurrences with particles, and even cataclysmic eruptions of energy. When people hear the phrase Theory of Relativity, they generally think of Albert Einstein and complex mathematical equations like e mc2. But many scientists played a part in developing the. But many scientists played a part in developing the theory. By learning of the history and practical applications of relativity, you can get an understanding of this complicated subject. Method 1 of 4: Learning the History of Relativity. Einsteins theory of general relativity explains almost everything large scale in the universe very well, but starts to unravel when examining its origins and mechanisms at quantum level. Scientists have been working for decades to combine Einsteins theory of gravity and quantum theory. There are certainly other notions, hypotheses, and theories on the nature of our reality, and I have only looked at a selection here. In nearly every case we lack the means to either verify or discount these often wild ideas, leaving them to be nothing more than thought experiments in a sense, doomed to swirl about in the limbo of debate, daydreaming, and speculation
