Einstein for Everyone
How did a young rebel, who seemed doomed to fail, overcome rejection to become the world's most famous scientist? In plain English, what do his theories mean? And how do they impact our lives through DVDs, GPS, computers, digital cameras, and smarter energy?

Dr. Robert Piccioni
Robert graduated from Caltech, has a Ph.D. in high-energy physics from Stanford University, and was on the research faculty of Harvard University. He is an expert on Einstein's theories and cosmology. Robert ran eight high-tech companies and holds patents in medical equipment, microelectronics, and smart energy. Since "retiring", Robert's mission is making science accessible. He teaches at the Osher Institute and hosts an online radio show "Guide to the Cosmos". Robert is the author of two books that were selected Best Popular Science Book of the Year in national and international competitions.

"What's Up?" in this month will be presented by Steve Condrey
