In 1905 Albert Einstein, a then-unknown 26-year-old Swiss patent clerk, published four papers, any one of which would have sufficed as the basis for a subsequently glorious career in the physics department of any university in the world.

In this, the 100th aniversary of what was truly an annus mirabilis, among the many ways to keep Einstein on your mind – or at least running in the background – is by installing this superb screensaver, created by three physicists.

It’s way beyond my intellectual pay grade but that doesn’t mean those of you who enjoy slumming here can’t make use of it.

    Thanks, AL

    It is the link Eric, but then when you get to the page, there’s no link to download the screensaver.

    ah, good point – it appears from this page that it isn’t available yet, but I could be wrong
