Even 140 years after Albert Einstein’s birth, his scientific discoveries still impact our lives. Lasers, nuclear power, fiber optics, driverless cars, GPS and space travel all trace back to Einstein’s theories. Last week, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem unveiled 110 new Einstein manuscript pages, most of which have not been displayed before, shedding light on the scientist and the man behind the science.

Einstein was one of the founding fathers of Hebrew University and he bequeathed his personal and scientific writings to the university. The university’s Albert Einstein Archives contains more than 80,000 items, including manuscripts, correspondences, photographs, diplomas and medals.

The new manuscripts were purchased from a private collector in North Carolina by the Crown-Goodman Family Foundation in Chicago, which gifted them to the archives...

Following the preservation and digitization of these new documents, HU’s Einstein Archives is working with Caltech’s Prof. Diana Kormos-Buchwald of the Einstein Papers Project to decipher the scientific and mathematical contexts for many of the calculations in this new collection.
