Commemorating the World Year of Physics
In celebration of Albert Einstein's extraordinary accomplishments, the U.S. Congress, the United Nations, and various governments and nongovernmental bodies declared 2005 the World Year of Physics. As part of Lawrence Livermore's participation in this yearlong celebration, Science and Technology Review published a four-part series, examining how Einstein's discoveries form the basis for much of the Laboratory's physics research.
