Kollokvium: Albert Einstein on Light; Light on Albert Einstein
Where does deep insight in physics come from? For those who view physics as a highly rational science grounded in strict mathematics, it is tempting to think that it comes from the purest and most precise of reasoning, following ironclad laws of thought that compel the clear mind completely rigidly. And yet the truth is quite otherwise.

Seminarium: Dismantling Hubble¹s Legacy?
Much of Edwin Hubble's legacy relies upon his supposed discovery
of 3 fundamental relationships/quantities in Astrophysics that were the
basis for much of 20th century cosmology. I will discuss how many others prior
to Hubble either discovered these first or were major (unattributed)
contributors to these discoveries.
