Calling all Einstein fans!

For the first time ever, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is releasing its collection of Albert Einstein‘s archives.  (Read the press release.)  Included are digital images of personal correspondences, speeches, fan mail, and most importantly, notebooks containing his groundbreaking scientific ideas.  These are the real deal … the images are so crisp that you can see the graininess of the pencil lead and the inconsistency of his fountain pen ink.  It is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen!
