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."

Good overview of Einstein's work
16 July 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

7/16/18. If you don't know much about Einstein, then this is worth catching. It pretty much explains Einstein's theories, and what a genius he was. An interesting factoid is the use of Einstein's theory in our use of GPS (geo-positioning systems) to find our way around this planet. Without Einstein we would be forever lost, unless you know how to read a compass.
