Also, there was a lecture in the afternoon:

1- Einstein’s Years in Switzerland and Beyond
“The lecture, Professor Hans Rudolf Ott (ETH Zurich), starts with explaining why Einstein, born in Germany, decided to emigrate to Switzerland, then covers his high-school education in Aarau, his studies at the Federal Polytechnical School in Zurich, the difficult transition to professional life and his rescue in Berne. It then describes the life and work of Einstein in Berne, emphasizing the annus mirabilis 1905 and continues with the transition to his academic career in 1909, resulting in 3 professorships in Zurich and Prague over the next 6 years. It describes his main scientific interests during that time, explains why Einstein left Switzerland and reviews his scientific accomplishments in Berlin and his rise to an internationally known figure, an early pop star. It concludes with a brief account of his later years.”

Speaker: Professor Hans Rudolf Ott (ETH Zurich)
Language: English
Date: 30 April 2011 (Saturday)
Time: 2:30pm-3:30pm

The exhibition hall is not very big, but big enough to spend the whole day there (if you are one of those who would read every single word and watch all of the videos shown in the exhibition). We had spent more than 6 hours there and still no time to watch the video in the astronomical theater. @0@

Day 104/365

E=mc2

“Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)” Exhibition is coming to Hong Kong in April 18th 2011. πŸ™‚

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and Switzerland, the exhibition started its tour in China last year. The first and second stops of the exhibition were in Beijing and Guangzhou. After traveling to these cities, the exhibition will be staging at the Hong Kong Science Museum between April 18th until August 31st.

Here is a brief of the Exhibit Highlights:

The Mirror Hall
Creating a sense of infinite space, the Mirror Hall shows video footage about the life of Einstein.

Private life of the Einstein family
These family pictures of Einstein were taken during his childhood in Munich.

Mirror Galvanometer
An instrument for detecting and measuring electric current. It has a small mirror attached to the moving element and uses a beam of light as an indicating pointer.

Einstein and Mileva Marić
Love letters between Einstein and his wife, Mileva are revealed in this small room.

Wonder Year 1905
In 1905, Einstein published papers on the special theory of relativity, photoelectric effect and Brownian motion.

Einstein’s pocket watch
This pocket watch once belonged to Einstein. He bequeathed it to his son Hans Albert.

Replica of the Nobel Prize diploma and medal
Awarded to Einstein in 1922 on his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.

Einstein’s Swiss passport
Einstein acquired this new passport in 1923.

The Photoelectric Effect
This experiment shows that light has the property not only of waves but also of particles.

The Brownian Motion
This exhibit illustrates the random movement of particles suspended in a fluid.

The Virtual Bicycle Ride
If we could travel close to the speed of light, we would see the world in a different way. You can hop on this bicycle and see it for yourself.

Black Hole
Black holes are regions in spacetime with extremely powerful gravitational fields. Here, you can experience what it would be like to be gobbled up by a black hole!

The Cosmological Theatre
Videos on the Sun, galaxies and major events in the history of the universe such as the Big Bang are shown here.

Refund Order

I and my friends had planned to visit South Korea on next week, but I just canceled the trip due to what is happening at the moment in Japan. I think I wouldn’t enjoy the trip that much if I go now. I feel guilty if I were enjoying taking pictures in Seoul while others were still suffering in the earthquake zone. =_=
