Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity: Now Live on YouTube and iTunes

This week, Stan­ford has start­ed to roll out a new course, Ein­stein’s Gen­er­al The­o­ry of Rel­a­tiv­i­ty. Taught by Leonard Susskind, one of Amer­i­ca’s lead­ing physics minds, this course is the fourth of a six-part sequence — Mod­ern Physics: The The­o­ret­i­cal Min­i­mum — that traces the devel­op­ment of mod­ern physics, mov­ing from New­ton to Black Holes. As the title sug­gests, this course (which runs 20 hours in total) focus­es square­ly on the ground­break­ing work of Albert Ein­stein. And, it’s undoubt­ed­ly a plus that the course was pre­sent­ed in Stan­ford’s Con­tin­u­ing Stud­ies pro­gram, which means that it’s tai­lored to smart non-spe­cial­ists like you. You can watch the first lec­ture on iTunes here, or YouTube below. The remain­ing lec­tures will be rolled out on a week­ly basis. If you would like to watch the longer sequence of cours­es, I have pro­vid­ed a com­plete list of links here. Enjoy.
